Well-known Chinese poet Yu Guangzhong died on Thursday at the age of 90, according to Taiwan-based media udn.com.

Yu was in hospital after suffering a stroke and had pulmonary infection.

Yu, a famous litterateur, poet and proser, was born in Nanjing city of Jiangsu province in 1928 and then moved to Taiwan province. Yu dedicated half a century to literary creation and his masterpiece Nostalgia has generated much resonance among ethnic Chinese around the world.

Let's take a look at the English version of Yu Guangzhong's Nostalgia.

Nostalgiaby Yu Guangzhong

When I was a child,Nostalgia seemed a small stamp:Here am IAnd there, my mother.

Then I was a grown-up,Nostalgia became a traveling ticket:Here am IAnd there, my bride.

During the later years,Nostalgia turned to be a graveyard:Here am IAnd yonder, my mother.

And now at present,Nostalgia looms large to be a channel:Here am IAnd yonder, my Continent!
