By Meng Chiao (751 – 814), Tang Dynasty, China.

Across a benevolent mother’s fingers, threads were being woven into a garment;
Which was for her son who was about to start a long journey;
Flustered that the son might return very late, she was sewing as tightly as possible;
Who says a blade of grateful grass can repay the rays from the spring sun.
《游子吟》

作者:孟郊, 唐朝
慈母手中线,游子身上衣。
临行密密缝,意恐迟迟归。
谁言寸草心,报得三春晖。
