I really enjoyed Bo Ju-yi. Once I hit that poem about laziness, I was like, man, this guy is AWESOME. It's like wanting a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich but not wanting to make one; you have to open all kinds of jars and get out the bread and dirty who KNOWS how many knives. But then you know it's not that hard, so you're just being ridiculous. Yeah. I liked that one. Alot.

I liked Yu Xuan-ji as well, especially the line "I have bitter regret that skirts of lace / hide the lines of my poems" Just very well said, and much more clear than most of the poetry we've done so far. Always good to hear from a woman too.

Lastly, basically all of Li Shang-yin is just.... totally lost on me.
