Quiet Night Thoughts - Poem by Li Po

Before my bed
there is bright moonlight
So that it seems
Like frost on the ground:

Lifting my head
I watch the bright moon,
Lowering my head
I dream that I'm home.

    Beautiful. And so true, I too have stared at the moon and felt more connected to loved ones in distant places. (Report) Reply
