Back

Huang Yao got along well with Liu Yazi and often met with him and other friends to discuss the creation of art in the wartime. On Poets Day - 5 May 1943, Huang Yao met up with Chen Xiaowei and Yue Zhen and had a banquet at Guilin’s Yangzi restaurant. Others who attended include, Liu Yazi, Tian Han, An Er, Xiong Foxi, Zhu Yinglong, Li Baifeng, Duanmu Hongliang, Yang Qianli, Hou Zhehua, Gao Pengjiu. It was a warm and happy gathering and Liu created the following poem:

 

大江东去已无春,卷土重来要此辰。

叔宝心肝原尔尔,伯仁涕泪已频频。

楼船直下收京阙,石室孤怀炼胆薪。

好遣老夫成酩酊,秣陵移取置榕漘。
