Dreaming of My Deceased Wife at Her Loom
I join the army far away.
Who’d send me warm clothes for cold day?
The mountain pass is clad in snow;
My dream of her loom brings me woe.
The poet in the army dreams of his deceased wife on a cold day.
The poem “Dreaming of My Deceased Wife at Her Loom” was written by Li Shangyin, a poet of the Tang Dynasty. This poem is about the author’s grief when he encountered heavy snow on his way to Shu, and uses this scene to express his deep longing for his late wife.
