PAYING RESPECTS TO THE POET AT THE LI PO HOUSE

William Marr

 

 

 

 

 

several days ago I was at the Du Fu Thatched Cottage

and we were talking about you

old Du Fu wanted me to convey his regards to you

 

he still stayed very thin

but he was happy and not at all jealous

that you were blessed with a body, plump and healthy

he also said

the names of Poet Immortal and Poet Saint are meaningless

poetry is not elementary school student composition

why worry about who is the number one writer

 

as for your life and background

where were you actually born

was Li really your last name

he said just leave them to the moon

and let those self-claimed clear-headed guys

to fish in the water
