Quick, who can find collection of Yang Xiu’s poems? I Googled and baidued for hours; the poem is something like “Rhapsody to Goddess” or “To the Tune of the Goddess”, NOT Cao Zhi’s version, though they may be found together.
I don’t even understand the Chinese original! (it’s in classical Chinese) Googled/Baidued for Chinese explanation too, haven’t found any. Hope somebody answers me in the Baidu forum.
May be found in the complete Book of Later Han, volume 51, Yang Biao and Yang Xiu, Eight???
(全后汉文卷五十一 杨彪杨修 八)
Below is the closest association I could find on his poem, but conveniently doesn’t talk about the line I want.
UPDATE: one explanation by a fan
