A Second Farewell To Governor Yen Wu At The FengJi Post Station


We have come far together, but here we must part;
the green hills vainly echo my feelings.
When will we again take wine cups in hand
to stroll as we did beneath last night's moon?
Every district sings sad songs at your leaving;
three reigns now you have served with distinction.
Now I must go back to my river village alone,
and alone live out the rest of my days.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
