Thinking of Home While Marching on Mountain-climbing Day

Cen Shen

Up the mountain I’d force myself to go,

But nobody would bring me wine around.

Chrysanthemums of my homeland should blow

To beautify the far-off battleground.

The poet would drink and enjoy chrysanthemums at home on Mountain-climbing Day.

Cen Shen – 岑参

The poem “Thinking of Home While Marching on Mountain-climbing Day” is a five-part poem composed by the Tang Dynasty poet Cen Shen.
