Since the early Western Han Dynasty, inscriptions appeared on bronze mirrors. With the evolution of history and the progress of casting technology, the number of words has been increasing and the content has become more and more rich. In the early period of the Western Han Dynasty, there were three kinds of sentence patterns: three words, four words, six words, and Sao style. After the late Western Han Dynasty, the situation of the seven-sentence sentence pattern was gradually formed, which has important reference value for studying the evolution of the Han Dynasty poetry style.
