Poetry - How To Write? - Poem by Albert Wong

Studies the poets to write the ancient poetry,
Level and oblique tones not to spectrum,
The person namely said orphaned is even,
Again reads also says the non- poem taste,
Ya, I am not Li Bai and Shakespeare,
Level and oblique tones wow.

How does the ancient poetry write?
The free verse written in the vernacular,
I the metropolitan examination am writing,
Honest and good-natured person,
I do not dare to break wind,
Why? Hey! Feared smelled has died you.

Heard the free verse written in
the vernacular is orderly.
Honest person, I give frighten!
Also is orderly,
How does the free verse written in
the vernacular write?
Left also is difficult,
Right also is difficult.

Now is not,
Ancient is not.
Reaches this point!
Was inferior to writes the doggerel?
I am not the poet,
I am not Du, Li and Shakespeare.

I only want to write,
of my own feeling.
Writes the happy world,
Writes the people painstakingly and is happy.



Notes: Ancient Chinese poets: Li and Du = Li Bai and Du Fo (Two of the most famous poets in ancient China.)
