This is a farewell poem. The first sentence was written from Qiu Yu last night, setting a desolate atmosphere for the farewell. “Pingming” in the second sentence indicates the time to see off the guest; “Chu Shangu” not only writes the whereabouts of the friend, but also implies the mood of seeing off the guest. The third or fourth sentence, written by myself, is still in line with the meaning of farewell.
Because Xin Jian is the poet’s fellow countryman, when Xin Jian returns home, relatives and friends must ask about the poet’s situation, so when the poet bids farewell to Xin Jian, he specially entrusts him: “If relatives and friends in my hometown ask me about my current situation, you can say, my Being human is like a piece of crystal clear ice, packed in a white jade pot.” He showed that he would not change the integrity of Yujie’s cleanliness for the sake of being demoted. The idea is novel, and the grievance and resentment are contained but not exposed.
“A piece of ice in a jade pot” is a poetic eye , but people have always believed that “jade pot” and “ice heart” refer to people’s good morals. The tone of the whole poem is beautiful, the style of poetry is somber, and it uses the form of question and answer, which is unique.
