A peculiar love triangle between Qi and Lu state, between brother,sister and husbund resulted the murder of the husband, the Lu state lord, which finally devastated the relationship of the two state. This poem described the aftermath of the murder, conveying the murdered Lu state lord back to his home state.
This poem reflected a time of changing: the Wind poem did not concentrate on its own state but looking beyond. The famous 鄘风 载驰(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNGBSsW-0qU) written some 30 years later may also referenced a lot from this one.
