About the Poem and Writer: This poem was written by Bai Ju Yi (772-846). He was a prolific poet who lived during the Tang Dynasty and passed down 3040 poems. His poems have spread throughout South East Asia to many countries such as Japan and Thailand. He used simple words in his poem that anyone can understand, even children. This was a poem he wrote for a lady artist. She had great talent, but led a poor life because nobody appreciated her, just look nobody appreciated him.
