Best Poem of Po Chu-I

A Forsaken Garden

I enter the court

Through the middle gate—

And my sleeve is wet with tears.

The flowers still grow

In the courtyard,

Though two springs have fled

Since last their master came.

The windows, porch, and bamboo screen

Are just as they always were,

But at the entrance to the house

Someone is missing—


Read the full of A Forsaken Garden

Autumn Cold

here's my snowy crown
time's tinted decrepitude
there's the frost in the courtyard
autumn's glittery breath
now I'm sick and just watching my wife
pick cure-alls
then I'm frozen waiting for the maid
to comb my hair
without the body

[Hata Bildir]
