Snow

Xie An, Xie Lang, Xie Daoyun[1]

To what may be compared a skyful of white snow? (Xie An)

It is like handfuls of salt in the air we throw. (Xie Lang)

Or wind-borne willow catkins wafting high and low. (Xie Daoyun)

注释:

[1] Xie An was prime minister and Xie Xuan was his nephew, commander-in-chief of the Southern army which fought against heavy odds and beat the Northern army in 383. Xie Lang was also his nephew and Xie Daoyun his niece.
