    Poem (1)
    In the quiet night
    So bright a gleam on the foot of my bed,
    Could there have been a frost already?
    Lifting myself to look,
    I found that it was moonlight,
    Sinking back again,
    I thought suddenly of home.

  5. Se Bai Ling says:

    Poem (2)
    A night-mooring near maple bridge
    While I watch the moon go down, a crow caws through the frost;
    Under the shadow of maple-trees a fisherman moves with his torch;
    And I hear beyond Su-Chou, from the temple on cold mountain,
    Ringing for me, here in my boat, the midnight bell.

  6. Se Bai Ling says:

    Poem (3)
    Women
    Women are look like beautiful color flowers;
    They sound look like a queen’s smillingly;
    They taste look like sweet bee-bread;
    And it smell like a mango;
    They can make feeling happiness of your life.

  7. Nice poems Se Bai, I believe the first to are classical Chinese poems. Is the first from Li Bai? Who wrote the second one? I know who wrote the 3rd poem. You should email one of your own poems to usadultliteracy@gmail.com and enter our Poetry Contest!
