Crossing River Han

Li, P'in (?-876 A.D.)

Mail delivery beyond the Five Mountains 1 has not been available throughout the winter.
Now the spring has begun
And I have decided to go home.
The closer I come to my hometown,
The more I worry about my family:
I dare not ask my townspeople about them.

1 Li was on the south side of the Five Mountains and has not received a letter from his home in the north throughout the winter.
