Li Po Poems

  • The Moon At The Fortified Pass
    The bright moon lifts from the Mountain of Heaven
    In an infinite haze of cloud and sea,
    And the wind, that has come a thousand miles,
    Beats at the Jade Pass battlements.... ...
  • To Tu Fu From Shantung
    You ask how I spend my time--
    I nestle against a treetrunk
    and listen to autumn winds
    in the pines all night and day. ...
  • Gazing At The Cascade On Lu Mountain
    Where crowns a purple haze
    Ashimmer in sunlight rays
    The hill called Incense-Burner Peak, from far
    To see, hung o'er the torrent's wall, ...
  • A Song Of An Autumn Midnight
    A slip of the moon hangs over the capital;
    Ten thousand washing-mallets are pounding;
    And the autumn wind is blowing my heart
    For ever and ever toward the Jade Pass.... ...
  • Clearing At Dawn
    The fields are chill, the sparse rain has stopped;
    The colours of Spring teem on every side.
    With leaping fish the blue pond is full;
    With singing thrushes the green boughs droop. ...

Eugene Field Poem
The Convalescent Gripster
 by Eugene Field

The gods let slip that fiendish grip
Upon me last week Sunday-
No fiercer storm than racked my form
E'er swept the Bay of Fundy;
But now, good-by
To drugs, say I-
Good-by to gnawing sorrow;
I am up to-day,
