孟郊 Meng Jiao

孟郊 Meng Jiao

Meng Jiao (Chinese: 孟郊; pinyin: Mèng Jiāo; Wade–Giles : Meng Chiao; 751–814) was a poet of the Tang Dynasty, in China. Two of his poems have been collected in the popular anthology Three Hundred Tang Poems. Meng was the oldest of the Mid-Tang poets and is noted for the unusual forcefulness and harshness of his poems.

Poetry
His poetry is generally written in the five-character per line gushi style (which can also be considered to be a type of "folk-song-styled-verse", or yuefu, as in the Three Hundred Tang Poems). Around 500 of his poems survive, many upon the themes of poverty and cold, and typified by the strong—and sometimes shocking—imagery advocated by Han Yu. Two of his poems are included in the Three Hundred Tang Poems. One of which, "遊子吟"—translated by Witter Bynner as "A Traveller's Song", by A. C. Graham as "Wanderer's Song", and by John C. H. Wu as "The Song of a Wandering Son"—is one of the most famous Classical Chinese poems.

游子吟 Song of the Parting Son

Author: -- 孟郊 Meng Jiao
慈母手中线,
The thread in mother's hand-
游子身上衣。
A gown for parting son,
临行密密缝,
Sewn stitch by stitch,alas!
意恐迟迟归。
For fear of cold he'll stand.
谁言寸草心,
Such kindness of warm sun
报得三春晖。
Can't be repaid by grass.
