Tu Fu Poems

  • On A Prospect Of T'ai-shan
    How is one to describe this king of mountains? Throught the whole of Ch'i and

    all that is numinous and beautiful. Its northern and southern slopes divide the
    dawn from the dark. The layered clouds begin at the climber's heaving chest, ...

  • Ballad Of The Army Carts

Isaac Watts Poem
Psalm Iii: My God, How Many Are My Fears
 by Isaac Watts

My God, how many are my fears!
How fast my foes increase!
Conspiring my eternal death,
They break my present peace.

The lying tempter would persuade
There's no relief from heaven;
And all my swelling sins appear
