Recently, the longest existing wooden arch covered bridge in China, Wan'an Bridge in Fujian, was destroyed by a fire, which made people sigh.

As an important mode of transportation by water and land, bridges have been playing the practical role from this bank to the other bank and from this mountain to other mountains since they were created.

In the eyes of romantic and creative ancient literati, bridges have a deeper meaning - connecting people's hearts and connecting ancient and modern.

On a summer day when the breeze swayed green, the author opened the dusty pages and stepped on the bridge that the ancients walked.

■Changan Baqiao: Baqiao smoke and willows know how much, whoever wants to send a passerby

  Since ancient times, you have left Chang'an in the east, and you have crossed the Baqiao to be the boundary of the Central Plains.

For thousands of years, there have been countless merchants and soldiers, Klookers, and frontier soldiers who have passed through this place. They have been running in times of peace or chaos. They bid farewell to the calm waters of Bashui and stood on the Baqiao. see.

At the same time, the deep sadness of parting is also brewing, fermenting, and finally spewing out from the high ground of human spirit, so a series of famous poems that will shine through the ages were born.

  According to the record in "Sanfu Huangtu": "The Ba Bridge is in the east of Chang'an, and it crosses the water as a bridge. The Han people send off guests to this bridge, and break the willows to say goodbye." Wrote the poem "every year willow color, Baling hurts goodbye".

There is also Liu Yuxi, who is called "Poetry Hao" by later generations. When facing Baqiao, he seems to have lost a bit of open-mindedness. His writing "The apprentice came out of Bahuai, how is the injury looking back", even more than Li Bai was even more mournful and sad. Those who traveled a long way could not bear to read it, but already burst into tears.

  "The willows are full of smoke and spring on the shore, and they become pedestrians every year."

Baling Bridge and Baqiao Willow, these two images coexist and coexist, relying on each other, which greatly enriches the emotional carrier of Chinese people's expressive expressions. poetic way.

And Baqiao, under the observation of literati, broke through material and time and space, and eventually evolved into an endless "Bridge of Love" and "Broken Gut Bridge" in the literary world.

  Twenty-four bridges in Yangzhou: Looking back at the end of the world, the twenty-four bridges sing and dance

  Huaizuo's name is Yangzhou, and the best place in Zhuxi is also Yangzhou.

In the splendid season of fireworks March, Meng Haoran chanted "the old man bids farewell to the Yellow Crane Tower in the west, and the fireworks descend to Yangzhou in March", while waving a boat down the Yangtze River.

When Zhang Hu of the Tang Dynasty first arrived in Yangzhou, he had already thought about what happened behind him, and he actually expressed the emotion that "life is only for death in Yangzhou, and Zen Zhishan makes a good tomb field", which is really sad and moving.

  Twenty-four bridges in Yangzhou.

The romantic debate over whether the Twenty-Four Bridges is one bridge or Twenty-Four Bridges has not ended.

Countless scholars and inexhaustible reasons do not prevent generations of literati from splashing ink here.

Among the many fans in Yangzhou, the leader should be Du Mu from the Tang Dynasty.

Du Mu's family background was prominent, and he was famous as a young man, so he was quite good at making friends and banquets, and he often let loose.

On a night with few stars in the moon, he used a bit of drunkenness to mix his mood into the moonlight, and wrote "Twenty-four bridges on a bright moonlit night, where can a jade person teach flute".

Since then, Twenty-Four Bridges has entered the realm of literature, and scholars and scholars have left their calligraphy treasures one after another. Seeing the loneliness of the late-"Twenty-four bridges with a bright moon, I will arrive in Yangzhou in my twilight years".

  Back then, the old man Jiang Kui of Baishi passed through Yangzhou, and saw the beautiful landscape that was once sung by Du Mu with affection, but now it is depressed and withered due to the years of war and turmoil. Jun rewarding, it’s so heavy to be startled now. Even with cardamom, the dream of brothel is good, but it’s hard to express affection. The twenty-four bridges are still there, the heart is shaking, and the cold moon is silent. I read the red medicine by the bridge, and I know who is born every year. ?"

■Wanli Bridge in Chengdu: Shuangliu Station with carved saddles, see flowers with silver candles on Wanli Bridge

  During the Three Kingdoms period, Zhuge Liang bid farewell to Fei Yi, who was about to be sent to Soochow as an envoy. Fei Yi sighed, "A journey of ten thousand miles begins with this bridge", and the Wanli Bridge was born.

It can be said that it is precisely because of the wealth of the Land of Abundance and the beauty of the surrounding scenery that the literati of the past dynasties yearned for it, so they recited and pondered over and over again, and there are countless works.

  After the Anshi Rebellion, the poet Du Fu dragged his "sickness for more than a hundred years" to help the old and young, and lived in the southwest all the way to Chengdu.

A moment of comfort and tranquility changed Du Fu's poetic style of "depression and frustration", and affectionately wrote "a cottage in the west of the Wanli Bridge, and the water in the Baihuatan is the Canglang", "Xishan Baixue Sancheng Guards, Nanpu Qingjiang Wanli Bridge" and so on. Fresh and bright poetry.

As the so-called "unfortunate poet for the country is fortunate", a poet who has been wandering all his life and has nowhere to rely on, has obtained a handful of peace and solace in his life in the beautiful Jinguan City.

  The Tang Dynasty Wang Jian's song "Send the School Book to Xue Tao in Shuzhong", "The girl's school book by the Wanli Bridge, the pipa lives behind closed doors. How many talented people know how much it is, it is better to manage the spring breeze", which made Xue Tao famous for a while and won " She has the reputation of "Sweeping Eyebrows Talent", but she never imagined that this also laid a foreshadowing for the second half of her lonely life.

Xue Tao, who lived in Huanhuaxi and made small colored paper by hand, never waited for Yuan Zhen, the swinger who said to her, "Don't miss the lovesickness after the smoke, and the calamus blossoms will grow five clouds high."

Wanli Bridge eventually became a sad and detached place in Xue Tao's life.

As the Yuan Zaju said: "The Thirty-three Heavens, Lihentian is the highest; the Four Hundred and Forty Diseases, the Acacia is the most painful."

■Nanjing Suzaku Bridge: I want to find Suzaku Bridge, the smoke is setting and the sun is blowing.

  As time goes by, the Qinhuai River in the shadow of the sound of paddles and lights has not changed its old wave;

Those turbulent situations, the years of gold and iron horses, and the sad thoughts when mourning and grief were fixed in the time when Qinhuai River and Suzaku Bridge were neither sad nor happy.

  In the indignation of experiencing the twists and turns of life and being squeezed out by political enemies, Liu Yuxi wrote a poem that has been passed down through the ages: "Wild grass and flowers by the Suzaku Bridge, the sunset at the entrance of Wuyi Lane. In the old days, Wang Xietang flew into the homes of ordinary people." It is full of great feelings and great style of worrying about the country and the people.

After the Song Dynasty went south, the poet Zhu Dunru was on his way to pay his respects, but when he saw "the evening market by the Suzaku Bridge, the new autumn under the stone city", he suddenly felt a pain in his heart, and it changed into "Where are the people in the past, the sad and lonely homeland, lonely The Tide" sentiments and mourning.

Bai Pu, one of the "Four Great Masters of Yuanqu", suddenly recalled the old dream of the prosperity of the Six Dynasties at the foot of Jinling City and beside the Suzaku Bridge, and sighed: "When will the weeds beside the Suzaku Bridge and the river water beside Bailuzhou, when will the grudge end?" In "Yuewei Caotang Notes", "The swallows of the six dynasties have not bloomed in the Suzaku Bridge. There is no need to ask Wang Xie, when did Liu Lang return?" Hugh's loneliness is expressed vividly and mournfully for a long time.

  Of course, the bridges that have been separated and saddened in the sky of literature are far more than that.

And on a certain night more than a thousand years ago when "the moon fell and the frost filled the sky", after Zhang Ji moored at night, Fengqiao, which shone in the realm of literature just now.

Broken Bridge, Magpie Bridge and Blue Bridge, which are well-known for their vigorous love, as well as the Xie Bridge in Yan Jidao's writings, which only exists at the spiritual level, they support and support together, and lift up the peaks of ancient literature one after another. .

  Just in this summer when the beacon smoke cleared, I followed the hurried footsteps of the ancients, read the bridge with them, and understood the bridge.
