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!
