    Dear Honorable Tu Fu,

    With great pleasure it was
    to read your fine wine poem
    many an Englishman would envy
    your 8th century language mastery
    As for me I like Vodka better than tofu

    Sincerely,

    Your gypsy friend from the 21st century

    Tu Fu had immense love for Li Po!
    Uriah loves them both!

Full Moon

Above the tower -- a lone, twice-sized moon.
On the cold river passing night-filled homes,
It scatters restless gold across the waves.
On mats, it shines richer than silken gauze.

Empty peaks, silence: among sparse stars,
Not yet flawed, it drifts. Pine and cinnamon
Spreading in my old garden . . . All light,
All ten thousand miles at once in its light!

[Hata Bildir]
