In the Mufu, the rebuilt palace home of the Naxi Mu family kings of Lijiang, are some paintings of the kings. Under one of these, a painting of Mu Gong, is a note that he was, among other things a poet. But in Lijiang I could find no one who knew of his poems, not could I find any book of his poems. I did find a book on the Mu kings which has a few scattered poems. I emailed my friend professor Xu Yongming at Zhejiang Daxue and he kindly sent me a number of poems including this one by Mu Gong, My thanks to professor Xu Yongming!
