This traditional poem was written by Wang Wei, during the Tang Dinasty and it’s called “The song of Wei City” . “Wei” is the ancient name for Xi’an (西安).
"The rain has soaked the soil of the Wei City,
the trees around my house are fresh.
Oh, my friend, drink the last glass of alcohol to say goodbye,
because when you exit to Yang Guan west path [refers to the frontier of Ancient China] you won’t have this old friend”.
Wang Wei was one of the most famous and important poet of Ancient China. He wrote this poem when he was already very old.
He wrote it during a very turbulent period of Ancient China’s history, when (755-762), when there was an internal rebellion.
The friend of the poet whom the poem is adressed was going to protect the frontier, and the poet tries to express his sadness, because he doesn’t know whether his friend was going to come back home or not.
