Fa Shu Ha is the old name for a Hakka village in Meinong which was also the old home of the lyricist, Siou-Ru Gu.   In her childhood memory, Fa Shu Ha was a symbol of Meinong’s prosperity.  However, with the excessive development in today’s world, neither flowers nor trees exist in Fa Shu Ha.  The name of the village became an empty shell.

Yu-Shan Tsai, the arranger,  dedicated the first edition of this piece to the Formosa Singers.
