Chinese poet Xu Zhimo's memorial garden opened at King's College Cambridge in England on Friday, during the fourth annual Cambridge Xu Zhimo Poetry and Art Festival. Dozens of poets from China and Britain gathered in the garden, reading their own works on the theme of Birds and Gardens.

Xu Zhimo was an early 20th-century Chinese poet. In 1921, Xu studied at King's College Cambridge. His best-known poem, "A Second Farewell to Cambridge," was written in 1928, after Xu's third visit to Cambridge. It is filled with longings for Cambridge, his love of England and its poetry.

90 years later, a Chinese garden named after Xu Zhimo's was designed and built at King's College Cambridge. It is the first Chinese garden built inside any college campus in Cambridge.
