孟郊 （751 — 814）
Passing the Imperial Examination
Meng Jiao (751 – 814)
Once unrefined and not worth an utter,
today I let loose and let my thoughts flutter.
With Spring’s gust of pride and swift hoof of horse,
I saw all Chang'an’s flowers in a single day’s course.
Chang'an was the capital city of Tang Empire (618 – 907).
