POETRY: The Tang Dynasty


The Tang Dynasty [618-907] was the golden age of Chinese poetry

Palace Song by Gu Kuang

From the jade tower up in
the sky comes the sound
of pipes and songs,

Sent down by the breeze
to mingle with the palace
women’s banter.

Shadows part for the
Moon palace – I heard a
Water clock drip in the night.

Rolling up my crystal
curtain I draw close to the Milky Way

...NOT LIKE WINTER IN LONDON!
