Bai Juyi Poems

  • The Beginning Of Summer
    At the rise of summer a hundred beasts and trees
    Join in gladness that the season bids them thrive.
    Stags and does frolic in the deep woods;
    Snakes and insects are pleased by the rank grass....
  • Resignation
    Don't think of the past;
    It only awakens painful regrets.
    Don't think of the future;
    It paralyzes with uncertain longings. ...
  • Flower No Flower
    Flower no flower
    mist no mist

    arrives at midnight ...
  • After Lunch
    After eating lunch, I feel so sleepy.
    Waking later, I sip two bowls of tea,

    then notice shadows aslant, the sun ...
  • Thinking Of The Past
    In an idle hour I thought of former days;
    And former friends seemed to be standing in the room.
    And then I wondered 'Where are they now?'
    Like fallen leaves they have tumbled to the Nether Springs. ...

William Cowper Poem
Denner's Old Woman
 by William Cowper

In this mimic form of a matron in years,
How plainly the pencil of Denner appears!
The matron herself, in whose old age we see
Not a trace of decline, what a wonder is she!
No dimness of eye, and no cheek hanging low,
No wrinkle, or deep-furrow-d frown on the brow!
Her forehead indeed is here circled around
With locks like the ribbon with which they are bound;
