Comments about Li Po

  • Fabrizio Frosini Fabrizio Frosini (6/11/2016 2:53:00 PM)

    Li Bai (Li Po) and Du Tu (Tu Fu) are the most loved Chinese poets.
    They are as important in Chinese literary history as Shakespeare is to people in Britain,
    Drunkenness didn't have negative connotations for an 8th Century poet - it was the route to divine inspiration. Li Bai and Du Fu were both heavy drinkers, even though in other ways their lives were very different.
    Li Bai was a huge celebrity, showered with honours because of his genius. Du Fu, on the other hand, had a quite harsh life...

    Li Po's poetry shows a generous free-spirit, celebrating unorthodox perceptions of life.
    With Tu Fu (Du Fu) he is the most esteemed representative of Daoist (Taoist) poetry [Taoism, or Daoism, is a spiritual path that emphasises the importance of living in natural harmony with the Tao (= the underlying consciousness of the universe - a cosmic unity underlying all phenomena) ].

    All i did was being nice and lovely It all started on a sunny day At school beautiful compound Were taboo was meant because of love A senior girl failed in love with a junior boy Unbelievable to other senior students Jealousy on the other junior students Have you ever tasted this. Feeling before? In a school lodge it has been in the ears of all birds Greatest story ever told Love birds enjoying thier relationship Gossip were meant in their names Their ears folds gossips,and the relationships grows bigger More jealousy and surprises embarks audiens the first love to both, they don,t know the love rules They play it like your first day on purzle Watering the love flower all together Standing together,watching it grow in a gazing squence Loves like you first day in suduku game No agurment, no quarel ,no misunderstanding Always trying to get it,s point of wickness Gossiper and news caster always troubling the ear, Finally in the school lodge Lover gave up there virginity to each other Not knowing it,s predicament and sacrifice It was the best night for them Blood everywere Finding out they gave up their virginity for both they promised each other love till enternity Always being the the top of In the school Gave them power and courage to survive Thirms ends, and holiday emarged Both crying bitterly, For they have no meens of incommunicado Waving to each other,please be alive till the school resumes No one enjoying the holiday Because their hapiness were not together The holiday was like a widow waiting for his husband to be burried Until the holiday came to an end,,, Boy was hurried back to school At the first day of school Busy looking for his happines Was all he did,,friend finds it so difficult to play with him Because his minds runs for were she could be Like a man waiting for the arrival of his wife to be in the church, he has no rest of mind Troubling and fighting his mind on hw to run to her To welcome her,, till the day fades away still no signs of her for five days made d him a dull boy Lesson in the class was,nt for his listening As her always troubles his mind over her wearabout Teacher and students were also on a suspence of her wearabout On a beautiful sunny sunday,, a news came to them That the girl died on a motor acident on her way back for her holiday The school lost it treasure the boy lost his happiness The teachers lost their hope They students lost a friend What a lost!!!!! All i did was being nice and lovely

Best Poem of Li Po

Alone And Drinking Under The Moon

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
the three of us; then I sigh
for the moon cannot drink,
and my shadow goes emptily along
with me never saying a word;
with no other friends here, I can
but use these two for company;
in the time of happiness, I
too must be happy with all
around me; I sit and sing
and it is as if the moon
accompanies me; then if I
dance, it is my shadow that
dances along with me; ...

Read the full of Alone And Drinking Under The Moon

Confessional


There was wine in a cup of gold
and a girl of fifteen from Wu,
her eyebrows painted dark
and with slippers of red brocade.

If her conversation was poor,
how beautifully she could sing!
Together we dined and drank
