You Do Not Come
Fang Gan

Far road east west wish ask who
Cold come no place send cold clothing
Leave time first plant hall before tree
Tree already bear nest person not return
The road is long, and east or west, I have no-one to ask,
The cold has come, but I've not place to send your cold weather clothes.
When you left, we'd just planted the tree before the hall,
The tree already bears a nest, the person's not returned.
