Fan-Piece, For Her Imperial Lord

O fan of white silk,
clear as frost on the grass-blade,

You also are laid aside.
A dashing, swaggering, or jaunty young man: a gay blade from the nearby
city.
9. a swordsman.
10. Phonetics .
a. the foremost and most readily flexible portion of the tongue, including
the tip and implying the upper and lower surfaces and edges.
b. the upper surface of the tongue directly behind the tip, lying beneath
the alveolar ridge when the tongue is in a resting position.
Frost is something cold being laid aside.

In the ancient China, Han dynasty, about two thousands years
ago,there is a imperial concubine who wrote a poem named fan. She
depicted a beautiful silk fan was laid aside for the coming autumn, to
express her grievance-- I am still young, still pretty, but why don't you
love me anymore?

In my 9th English class, we discussed this poem. It was concluded that the
narrator is saying he is being laid aside, being rejected, just as the fan
is. I simply love the expression of rejection in it. It is a powerful poem
to me.
