About Tu Fu

Rating: 2.9
I met Tu Fu on a mountaintop
in August when the sun was hot.

Under the shade of his big straw hat
his face was sad--

in the years since we last parted,
he'd grown wan, exhausted.

Poor old Tu Fu, I thought then,
he must be agonizing over poetry again.

and i think the reason tu fu was *second* best poet was because of all the agonizing he goes through; tu fu's poetry is about war and politics, li po's about nature and wine - i think this gives li po an unfair advantage when it comes to beautiful poetry.
