Paper Boat Tanka - Poem by Chenou Liu

Version I:

a paper boat
made from early drafts
of my poem
sails down the river...
moonlit memories

a paper boat
made from early drafts
of my poem
sails down the river
of moonlit memories


Version III:

a paper boat
made from early drafts
of my poem
sails down the river...
of moonlit memories


note: there are three different river images portrayed in these versions due to their structural differences
