These are the first of 2 verses of the poem 出塞 by Tang poet Wang Changlin (王昌龄)：
The poet used “the Qin Dynasty moon overlooking the Han Dynasty guard post” to poetically describe the extremely long tenure of guard duty enforced on soldiers sent “ten thousand miles away” to the borders. It paid a touching tribute to the hardship endured by the soldiers, and their families waiting at home.
