CHINESE POEMS 学诗词 Clear Bright《清明》

Learning Chinese Poems is a great way to practice pronunciation, but also learn a bit about the culture and history.

Today’s poem is from Tang Dynasty poet Dù Mù about a lone traveller’s thoughts around the time of Qīng Míng Jié. 

Qīng míng jié or Clear Bright Festival, also knowns as Tomb Sweeping day, is a traditional Chinese holiday occurring around the 5th of April every year. During qīng míng families gather to celebrate their ancestry by sweeping tombs, placing offerings, and burning joss paper. The holiday also promote people to become closer with nature by going for outings on the field and fly kite. It is a holiday about family and Mother Nature.

清明节是每年四月五日前后的中国传统节日。清明节期间,人们与亲人团聚一同祭祖,扫墓,献上贡品,以及为祖先烧纸钱。清明节的另一个传统是踏青放风筝,以提醒人们珍惜大自然与家人。因此清明节兼具了人文与自然两大内涵,是十分重要的春季节日。
