    i like both Li Po 'n Tu Fu.
    They were contemporaries and
    had run across eachother a few times.
    Their poems were pure and out of their soul;
    that makes them the classic poets (Report) Reply

    and i think the reason tu fu was *second* best poet was because of all the agonizing he goes through; tu fu's poetry is about war and politics, li po's about nature and wine - i think this gives li po an unfair advantage when it comes to beautiful poetry. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
