Quatrain on Autumn

by Yang Meizi

Abstract

Autumn quatrain by Yang Meizi, empress during the Song under Emperor Ningzong's reign. The quatrain refers to the Double-Ninth Festival (Chong yang), the ninth day of the ninth lunar month, on which revelers traditionally ascended hills or high towers to enjoy distant views: 'On festival days of the four seasons people busily hurry; From this one knows we are living in a happy domain. The ninth day [of the ninth month] approaches, yet beside the fence it is lonely; Only when the chrysanthemums blossom will the Chong yang festival arrive.' [quote from Richard Harrist]
