    Dear Honorable Tu Fu,

    With great pleasure it was
    to read your fine wine poem
    many an Englishman would envy
    your 8th century language mastery
    As for me I like Vodka better than tofu

    Sincerely,

    Your gypsy friend from the 21st century

    Tu Fu had immense love for Li Po!
    Uriah loves them both!

Best Poem of Tu Fu

Full Moon

Above the tower -- a lone, twice-sized moon.
On the cold river passing night-filled homes,
It scatters restless gold across the waves.
On mats, it shines richer than silken gauze.

Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,
Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon
Spreading in my old garden . . . All light,
All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

Read the full of Full Moon

Day's End

Oxen and sheep were brought back down
Long ago, and bramble gates closed. Over
Mountains and rivers, far from my old garden,
A windswept moon rises into clear night.

Springs trickle down dark cliffs, and autumn
Dew fills ridgeline grasses. My hair seems
Whiter in lamplight. The flame flickers
Good fortune over and over -- and for what?

[Hata Bildir]
