|EPILOGUE OF SHENZHEN LING"S FAMILY HISTORY|
|作者：凌冰 凌剑… article来源：本站原创 点击数：4087 更新时间：2008-10-10|
The ancestors of the family of LING were the group of people dealing with ICE (Ling means ice)
The surname of LING is pronounced differently in different dialects. LING is pronounced in Mandarin, LING or LENG in Cantonese and LYN or LIN in Hakka…… For the purposes of this epilogue, Mandarin pronunciation is used for most names of places as well as human names.
In order trace back when and where our clan of Ling was from, we need to know the story of a great man called HUANGDI. Huangdi in general means Emperor, but this hero HUANGDI here is unanimously regarded as the first Emperor of China who conquered all different clans and unified the central part of
According to the various historical records and the books of Ling’s genealogical tree , the clan of Ling originally belonged to the clan of Ji in the ancient period when HUANGDI ruled
One of Kangsu’s sons (the Emperor’s grandson) was appointed as an officer called “Ling Ren”, The main duty of his office was to cut and store ice in the cellars in winter which were used as cooling system by the Emperor and the Palace during the summer time. Since then, this clan of Ji became the clan of Ling as remembrance of the official title of “Ling”. These people were the first ancestors of our LING’s clan. It was about 1,000 B.C. That’s why we said our ancestors were the group of people dealing with ICE. Can we proudly claim that we all have royal blood?
Our ancestors have since settled in the state of Wei (Tangyin Xen Couty,
Many of our Ling’s descendants have moved thousand miles from the icy cold
“The history of Ling’s family
Goes back to ages past
The ancestors, the descendants
A million stories untold”
In Southern China, the
“Wu Tong Mountain
Piercing through the sky
Where snow quietly falls in winter
And tranquility fills the summer”
There is no more snow or ice in Wu Tong Mountain nowadays because of global warming, however, many people and their stories surrounding this mountain, whether told or untold, are buried under the glacier.
I like Dai Wangshu, a poet of the new era. I am actually one of his super fans. I loved his poem ”Rain in the Lane”, and had longed for “wander along a long, solitary lane in the rain, in the hope of encountering a girl like a bouquet of lilacs gnawed by anxiety and resentment”. I also like his other poem “The unexpected-A poem Casually Composed” which was written when he was in jail in Hong Kong during the time of Japanese occupation in the Second World War:
“When the spring of life revives
Even the most ancient glacier defrosts
Revealing the splendid smile of yours
Roaring are our long lost dreams”
“Precious is the essence of life
For its existence never ceases
Frozen in the depth of time it may
Bloom an age of undying flowers”
Yes indeed, all precious and good things can probably be frozen, but will never cease. As one of a new “Hakkarian”, and a member of younger generation of our Ling family, I would like to mention a couple of outstanding people and their achievements, who were the descendants of our great, great grand uncle Ling Zhengao. One of them was already mentioned Ling Shenyuan, he wrote a famous article “The Theory of Strengthening China though Divine Righteousness” which was published in “The Globe Magazine” more than half century’s ago .Another uncle, Dr. Ling Daoyang, a scholar well-know in China/Hong Kong and USA also presented a series of remarkable publications and articles during the period of
I remember the winter days of my childhood, water in little rivers and small ponds would be frozen, the children in our village would excitedly shout: “it’s Freeze-Ling(Ling means ice), the ice is Freeze-Ling!”. Even now, we don’t use “Frozen” in our village, we say “Freeze-Ling” or “Freeze-Ling ice”. “Frozen” is modern language; “Freeze-Ling” is more like a native dialect unique in our family.
I know Yellow River in northern China is “Freeze-Ling” in winter, but all “Freeze-Ling ice” will melt when spring comes to our great land, by then all flowers will be in full bloom, and the entire land of China will be filled with green, green grass again.
“The rhyme of heritaged
Flows swiftly as the wind
Quakes the earth with might
Nurtures a fountain of spring”
