"A Song of White Snow in Farewell to Field Clerk Wu Going Home," which was written by Cen Shen, a famous Chinese poet during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), which depicts a spectacular scene of snow in August while simultaneously bidding farewell to a fellow official in the Western Region of China.
běi fēng juǎn dì bái cǎo shé, hú tiān bā yuè jí fēi xuě
The north wind rolls the white grasses and breaks them
And the Eighth-month snow across the Tartar sky
hū rú yī yè chūn fèng lái, qiān shù wàn shù lí huā kāi
Is like a spring gale come up in the night,
Blowing open the petals of ten thousand pear trees.
lún tái dōng mén sòng jūn qù, qù shí xuě mǎn tiān shān lù
We watch him through Wheel Tower Gate going eastward.
Into the snow mounds of Heaven-Peak Road
shān huí lù zhuǎn bù jiàn jūn, xuě shàng kōng liú mǎ háng chú
And then he disappears at the turn of the pass,
Leaving behind him only hoofprints
