This blog is for thoughts on poetry and poems. Hopefully the world gets to be an even better place to be this way.

This is so weird. I was searching for the Canadian wrestling poetry anthology and found this. This is not it.
This is. It contains Canadian poetry, thus the tag. I would have been remiss not to note this fact, even if it requires a searcher to dig down.
It’s great to meet you.
I didn’t even know this “About” page existed, so I edited in a little blurb.
I am a composer and would like to use one of your english translated chinese poems to set music to.
Are there any copyright issues involved?
Please let me know.
Thanks for coming by deegeesbb.wordpress.com. I hope you found your way around okay.
I talked to an organizer about expanding the word on wrestling. I’ll send him to your page. Very nice.
Nice blog, here’s another poetry forum for your consideration :

Hey – Great blog. In case you’re still taking submissions, here’s my rendition of Li Bai’s drinking along by moonlight:
In Blossom Time
In blossom time
With a jug of wine
Without a friend
I raise my glass
And invite the moon
To share the bottle
With me and my shadow
What a party we make
The moon looks down
In sober disdain
And my idiot shadow
Follows my every move
Friends for the night
We come together in pleasure
To make the most
Of this glorious weather
But while I sing and dance
Shadow wobbles unsteadily
And moon remains aloof
If only I could sober up
Before the party ends
Maybe we’d all end up
The best of friends
Yet before stumbling apart
Let me propose a solemn oath
That we three reunite soon
In the distant Milky Way
— translation by Lan Hua 2011
Really enjoyed this blog post, is there any way I can receive an email sent to me whenever you publish a fresh post?
I don’t know if there is a way to subscribe.
