Listen to flute playing at a spring night in City Luoyang
Author: Bai Li(AD701-AD762, Tang Dynasty)

From whose courtyard does this melody of jade flute fly out,
Scattered into the spring breeze waving through City Luoyang.
Stranger in this place I could hear the rhythm of ‘willow picking’,
At such night I can not stop thinking of where I left, my hometown.
春夜洛城闻笛 谁家玉笛暗飞声, 散入春风满洛城。 此夜曲中闻折柳, 何人不起故园情。 Image Courtesy: 可可英语《春夜洛城闻笛》 李白
