Farewell to Vice Prefect Tu Setting Out for His Official Post in Shu

ISSUE:  Spring 1925

By a wall that circles the three Ch’in districts,
In a mist that makes five rivers one,
We bid each other a sad farewell,
We two official wanderers. . . .
And yet, while the Four Seas bind our friendship
And heaven remains our neighborhood,
Why should you linger there at the cross-road,
Rubbing your eyes like a heart-broken child?
