A Verse with Eight Seven-Character Lines
Ode to Jia Yi
Young and gallant talent for the royal court,
Whose unrealized ambition is regret.
Cherishing papers in his bosom like one million troops,
He treated China heartily by establishing stations up to one thousand.
The hero had no resources to convince the Emperor,
And the lofty person was suspected at last.
For thousands of years everybody feels sorry for Taifu of Changsha,
Who commented at Miluo in vain and treaded in the footprint.
