A mother's love is always regarded as the most selfless, unconditional and forgiving. Chinese literary figures have written many articles and poems extolling maternal love.

Among them, the poem "Song of the Parting Son" written by Tang Dynasty (618-907) poet Meng Jiao is most popular. President Xi Jinping once recited the poem at a reception celebrating the Spring Festival, a time of family reunion in China.

On this Mother's Day, let's follow Xi to review this poem and salute mothers everywhere.
