Full video also available at Bilibili: 小雅 谷风
The first poem in the sub-chapter Ten Poems of Gufeng(谷风之什) in Xiaoya(小雅). The sub-chapters look like having a focalpoint each, but not every poem fits in that focalpoint in today’s view. Furthermore, the poems listed in each chapter look like per the witten time.
This poem is about brotherhood or love between a couple, complaining to the betrayed friendship or love. The Wind of Valley is facilitated as the background: the relation was changed by the changing wind easily. By refering to the peak of mountain at third paragraph, the accused other guy very likely was the king or a very high ranking officer.
