Wei Yingwu: Mail Off to My Relatives

Mail Off to My Relatives

寄 诸 弟
岁 暮 干 戈 乱 京 国
帛 书 间 道 访 存 亡。
还 信 忽 从 天 上 落
唯 知 彼 此 泪 千 行。
Ji Zhu Di

Sui mu gan ge luan jing guo
Bo shu jian dao fang cun wang.                                                                                          Huan xin hu cong tian shang luo
Wei zhi bi ci lei qian xing.
