HEY HELP NEEDED It is amazing that how vividly and appealing this song is .Describing a young girl’s pure love in such a gentle way. It is typical that most Chinese ancient songs or poems have a story behind them.Those stories may be happy or sad.But no matter what ,they are all beautiful just like quietly blooming flowers.With five thousand year’s culture , we prefer to express our feelings in a reserved (or veiled) way.We find it more meaningful to say There is a heart living for you than I love you.That is what makes our culture profound and unique.You cannot find it in any other country.It is like a bottle of aged wine ,take a sip and the aftertastes will be everlasting. If I shall compare our ancient culture to a summer day , then the song of yueren will just be a (?)freeze that blew across you gently.May it not be that important ,but it will definitely make you refreshed and amazed that how extensive and profound our culture can be.

It should be 'breeze', not 'freeze'.
