Come, O Guide Of The Age


Come, O guide of the age,
The fearless and the bold.
Come, O the eternally beautiful,
The serene and the confident;
I sing your victory.
Come, O hero.
The raised thunder.
Come, O the unconquerable,
The cruel and the arrogant,
I sing your victory.

O the healer of the sorrows
Of dumb millions,
Wake up.
O the leader of the age;
I sing your victory,
I welcome you.

Listen to the healirending cries over there
Come, O the severer of fetters.
The child is awakening,
The child is seeking light
Come, O the rising sun,
I sing your victory,
You I welcome.

Poem of the Day

poet Tu Fu

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
