Song of Huangfu Song

The Book of the Later Han Dynasty says, "Huang Fu Song is a pastoralist in Jizhou.

Let Jizhou rent farmland for one year to support the hungry people.

” The chaotic city in the world is in ruins. The mother does not protect her son and wife, but loses her husband. She relies on the Huangfu to settle down again.

The Original Poetry:

皇甫嵩歌 杂歌谣辞三

《后汉书》曰:“皇甫嵩为冀州牧。

请冀州一年田租以赡饥民,百姓歌之。

”天下大乱兮市为墟,母不保子兮妻失夫,赖得皇甫兮复安居。
