Where did you go after our farewell last year,
I heard people saying you went to east of Yantze?
Wasn’t the original plan sailing all the way across the ocean?
Ah, Now you are back, must be waiting for the prevailing wind!
东鲁见狄博通 去年别我向何处。 有人传道游江东。 谓言挂席渡沧海。 却来应是无长风。 Image Courtesy: jingweizhai.blog.163.com
