A Poetess On Mercury And Venus
Her pseudonym was Householder of Yi'an.
Li Ching Chao, or Li Qingzhao in pinyin,
was an eminent Chinese poet and calligrapher
who flourished in the 11th and 12th centuries
during the Song dynasty.
Her poems are refined and poignant.
While she shared many happy moments
with her husband, collecting books and artefacts,
she felt uneasy at his spending their resources
on creating a museum, instead of buying exigencies,
