"I will come to meet you as far as ever you please, Even to the dangerous sands of Ch’ang-fēng...."   (Text of the Poem)

Ch’ang-feng is a city a few hundred miles outside of Chang-kan. In the same way that the speaker instructs her husband to send her a letter, she is ready to take action herself, even risking danger to be reunited with her paramour. Just as much as this is a love poem, it is also a coming-of-age poem as the speaker develops from a child to a woman who is willing to take charge of her destiny.
