We’re just about ready for National Poetry Month!

Hello, Poetry Lovers! Tomorrow begins both April and National Poetry Month! Enjoy a poem every day in April and express your own poetic creativity!

Here’s a little taste — composed by Su Tung P’o and translated by Kenneth Rexroth.

Cheers, Team April

On the Siu Cheng Road

A gentle East wind is blowing.
I travel through the mountains.
White clouds rest on the petals like
Caps of silk floss. Over
The tree tops the sun gleams like
A polished cymbal. Peach trees
Bloom beyond bamboo fences.
Along the streams, willows wave
Above the pools. The mountaineers
Of the West know how to be
Happy, full of melon soup
And fried bamboo shoots after
The spring sowing.
