lament of Xi Chun. Translated by Arthur Waley

My people have married me
In a far corner of Earth:
Sent me away to a strange land,
To the king of the Wu-Sun.
A tent is my house,
Of felt are my walls;
Raw flesh my food
With Mare’s milk to drink.
Always thinking of my country.
Would I were a yellow stork
And could fly to my old home!
