Chinese poetry, and the poets that write them, have always held a high level of reverence in Chinese cultural traditions.

Inspired by his current visit to the Middle Kingdom, our own inhouse L|F poet laureate, David Lake, takes a shot at this ancient art. His verses from the abstract comes to you…unedited!

Reflected self at Tianjin park

Saw summer palace yesterday
Off to forbidden city tomorrow
Great wall Ming tombs Saturday

Monday I take train to Suzhou

And there you go, some profound verses for you to mull over until the next installation of From China with Love!
