Poems of Meng Jiao
Blessed by a Dream while Walking
Chu hills struggle to hide their losses.
They never let broad daylight in.
Chu roads ramble in confusion.
Travelers are lost and lost again.
Qiji yearns for his defeated master.
The partridges all want to fly south.
I yearn to visit old Luoyi, where they
Wouldn't spurn my travel-worn clothes.
Qiji (骐骥) was a famous horse. I can't determine whose horse he was. But I'm betting he was some leader of the Chu kingdom. No idea what significance the partridges have here, either. Luoyi was the first incarnation of Luoyang and the Zhou kingdom's capital.
