Sheng Family Garden

"Spring is as green, In vain she's lean. Her silk scarf soak'd with tears and red with stains unclean. Peach blossoms fall, Near desert'd hall, There remains the oaths we did swear. But I cannot sent letter to the fair. Ne'er, ne'er, ne'er."
The above-mentioned lines are a part of the famous poem, entitled "The Phoenix-shaped Hairpin"by Lu You.



The history of Sheng Family Garden recorded a story about a tragic marriage of the patriotic poet Lu You of the Southern Song Dynasty and his lover Tang Wang. It is said that Lu was forced to separate from his wife, Tang Wang and he was very sad about it. One day, more than ten years after the divorce, he happened to meet Tang Wang in the Sheng Family Garden. With mingled feelings of grief and joy, he wrote a poem entitled "the Phoenix-shaped Hairpin" on the wall of the garden.
The poem moves readers to tears.

The eternal regret reflects an unfortunate life of the poet Lu You.
