Celebrating King Wan

Rating: 5.0

The royal Wan now rests on high,
Enshrined in brightness of the sky.
Chow as a state had long been known,
And Heaven's decree at last was shown.
Its lords had borne a glorious name;
God kinged them when the season came.
King Wan ruled well when earth he trod;
Now moves his spirit near to God.

A strong-willed, earnest king was Wan,

And still his fame rolls widening on.

Remember him from whom it springs; - Let this give to your virtue wings. Seek harmony with Heaven's great mind; - So shall you surest blessing find. Great poem.

For Heaven's high dealings are profound, And far transcend all sense and sound. From Wan your pattern you must draw, And all the States will own your law. . . .nice theme. Beautiful poem. Thanks and congratulations to his soul for being selected as the poem of the day.
