What's the saddest ancient poem you've ever read?

"The Heartbroken Man is in the End of the World" is the saddest ancient poem I have ever read. The Yuan Dynasty writer Ma Zhiyuan's "Tianjingsha·Qiu Si" has only 28 words, but it expresses the sadness of ancient and modern times. The whole poem is as follows: withered vines, old trees and dim crows, small bridges and flowing water people, ancient roads with west wind and thin horses. Sunset, heartbroken people in the horizon. Before our eyes, there is such a picture: the crow at dusk is perched on the old tree with withered vines, there is a family living with running water by the small bridge, on the unfamiliar waste road a skinny horse supports a wandering wanderer, Walking slowly on the ancient autumn road. The setting sun is already sinking in the west, and the wanderer who wanders in a foreign land is far away. Ma Zhiyuan's little decree is just 28 characters long, with far-reaching connotations and exquisite structure. It depicts the sad and lonely situation of a wandering wanderer in the late autumn dusk and the sadness of missing his hometown. The whole song does not contain a single "autumn", but it describes the desolate and desolate scene of late autumn; it does not need a single "thinking", but it describes the nostalgia and worry of wanderers. The language of the poem is extremely concise, with huge capacity and far-reaching meaning. It uses scenery to support feelings and connotes feelings in scenery. The first four sentences are all about scenery. The words make the rich autumn colors contain an infinitely desolate and sad mood. And the last sentence "Heartbroken people are in the end of the world" as a song has the finishing touch, making the scene described in the first four sentences become the environment for human activities, as the trigger for the sad feelings of the heartbroken people in the world. There are scenes, the scenes are wonderfully combined, and the language is simple and concise, reflecting the desolate and depressing scenery in autumn, and incorporating ten images that express the lonely and melancholy feelings of the traveler into the text, condensing one's own emotions into these ten images, and finally with a little clearness. The pen reveals the theme of the whole piece, makes the individual's emotion gain universal social meaning, and expresses the rich emotion with the least words. Using numerous dense images to express the author's bitterness and sad autumn hatred, he is known as the "ancestor of autumn thoughts" in poetry. This poem is composed of heartbroken people touching the scene and feeling love, with withered vines, old trees and crows, and small bridges and flowing water, it creates a desolate and gloomy atmosphere, and at the same time paints a secluded village scene in late autumn. The ancient road with west wind and thin horses depicts a desolate and desolate artistic conception of autumn wind, and naturally embodies the poet's infinite melancholy in the picture. The heartbroken man is the finishing touch in the end of the world. On the picture of the village field in late autumn, there is a wanderer who wanders the end of the world. On the desolate ancient road with the setting sun and sunset, he leads a thin horse and walks against the miserable autumn wind. Man traveled, saddened, but didn't know where he belonged. This little poem uses the technique of expressing emotions and scenes to render the atmosphere and show the theme, perfectly expressing the sad thoughts of the wandering traveler. It uses the technique of line drawing to create a typical desolate environment. It is often accompanied by dusk, setting sun, fallen leaves, and dead branches, and has become a symbol of the decline of all things. Therefore, on the one hand, autumn scenery can give people a physical cold feeling, and on the other hand, it can trigger all kinds of sad feelings inherent in people's hearts. It can be called the saddest of ancient poems.
