Friday Poetry: Li Po

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone has some fun plans for the weekend.

My chosen poem today is by a Chinese poet Li Po (701-762).

Poem is translated by Shigeyoshi Obata.

Addressed Humorously to Tu Fu

Here! is this you on the top of Fan-ko Mountain,
Wearing a huge hat in the noon-day sun?
How thin, how wretchedly thin, you have grown!
You must have been suffering from poetry again. 

Li Po

Happy Reading
