Well-known Chinese poet Yu Kuang-chuang 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 Kuang-chuang's Nostalgia.


by Yu Kuang-chuang

When I was a child,

Nostalgia seemed a small stamp:

Here am I

And there, my mother.

Then I was a grown-up,

Nostalgia became a traveling ticket:

Here am I

And there, my bride.

During the later years,

Nostalgia turned to be a graveyard:

Here am I

And yonder, my mother.

And now at present,

Nostalgia looms large to be a channel:

Here am I

And yonder, my Continent!
