苏武 Su Wu

Su Wu (simplified Chinese: 苏武; traditional Chinese: 蘇武; pinyin: Sū Wǔ; Wade–Giles: Su Wu; 140 BC - 60 BC[citation needed]) was a Chinese diplomat and statesman of the Han Dynasty. He is known in Chinese history for making the best of his mission into foreign territory: where, despite being captured during the event and being detained for nineteen years, enduring major hardship at least in the beginning years of his captivity, he yet endured, all the while remaining faithful to his mission and his homeland. According to Chinese tradition, in the early time of his captivity, Su Wu was so deprived of food that he only survived in the cold north lands by eating his coverings, then enduring long years of servitude herding sheep, before managing to return home, after deceiving his captors with a story about his having sent a message back to China by means of tying a letter on the leg of a wild goose. Sometimes Su's loyalty to the Han Dynasty is emphasised by the story that during his detainment he married a wife, that he had children by her, but that he chose to return to his homeland, even though it meant it abandoning his wife and children.

留别妻 Su Wu to His Wife (III)

Author: -- 苏武 Su Wu
结发为夫妻,
As man and wife we ever unite;
恩爱两不疑。
We never doubt about our love.
欢娱在今夕,
Let us enjoy our fill tonight
嬿婉及良时。
As tender as a cooing dove!
征夫怀远路,
Thinking of the way I should go,
起视夜何其?
I rise to see if time is due.
参辰皆已没,
The stars appear dim high and low;
去去从此辞。
Adieu! I must bid you adieu.
行役在战场,
Away to battlefield I'll hie;
相见未有期。
I know not if we'll meet again.
握手一长叹,
Holding your hand, I give a sigh;
泪为生别滋。
My tears of farewell fall like rain.
努力爱春华,
Enjoy the spring flowers in view!
莫忘欢乐时。
Do not forget our time in glee!
生当复来归,
Safe and sound, I'll come back to you;
死当长相思。
Even killed, my love won't die with me.
