A Scenery like His Homeland

Dai Shulun

Summer is cool beneath thatched roof under the pine,

Clouds cast a gloom over the trees and the sand fine.

In autumn breeze the roamer will sink in a dream.

How like his homeland look hills beyond the stream?

The poet does not describe the scenery so much as his own feeling.


This poem is a seven-line poem written by Dai Shu Lun, a poet of the Tang Dynasty, during his travels. This poem is not about the landscape, but about the author’s strong feelings of homesickness.
