This is my translation of Wang Wei’s poem:
Wang Wei: Thinking of Shandong Brothers on the Ninth Day of the Ninth Month
Alone as a foreigner in a foreign land
I long for loved ones at festivals
Knowing from afar where my brothers are hiking
All will wear Dogwood* but one
*Dogwood is worn for luck and remembrance of good friends on the ninth day of the ninth lunar month (重陽節Chongyang Festival）when people go hiking in the hills, some to tend the graves.
