Hi, are you interested in Chinese poems?
I feel like introducing a little bit about Chinese poems, hope you'll enjoy.
I will begin with poems of the late T'ang by Tu Mu(803-852).
"Tu Mu is most admired as a master of Chueh-chu, the New Style quatrain with an AABA rhyme scheme like that of Omar Khayyam. " And there are two types of such quatrains, one with 5 characters in each of the four verses, the other with 7.
The first opem is Spring in Chiang-nan, translated by A. C. Graham.
Spring in Chiang-nan
For a thousand miles the oriole sings, crimson against the green.
Riverside villiage, mountain ramparts, wineshop streamers in the wind.
Of four hundred and eighty monasteries of the Southern Dynasties
How many towers and terraces loom in the miasty rain?
tips: Chiang-nan refers to the palce in the south of the lower reaches of the Changjiang river(also called Yangtse River, the longest river in China). This is a relatively prosperous area in China and has a lot of rivers and lakes.
The second poem is Trevelling in the Mountains, also translated by A.C. Graham.
Travelling in the Mountains
Far up the cold mountain the stony path slopes:
Where the white clouds are born there are homes of men.
Stop the crriage, sit and enjoy the evening in the maple wood:
The frosty leaves are redder than the second month's flowers.
Tu Mu written a lot of other poems, but for time's sake, I could not intoduce more. Sorry for my poor English
