NOTES:
Tao Yuanming is also known as Tao Qian and as T'ao Ch'ien.

Tao Yuanming is from the Six Dynasties period (c. 220 – 589), the period just prior to the Tang Dynasty, the “Golden Age” of Chinese literature.  He is the most highly regarded poet prior to the Tang era, a fact that Tang poet Li Bai uses in his wine poems , Two Poems Written As Parting Gifts.

Tao Yuanming (365 – 427), Chinese poet

translated by Arthur Waley (1889-1966), British scholar/poet

The lingering clouds, rolling, rolling,

And the settled rain, dripping, dripping,
In the Eight Directions – the same dusk.
The level lands – one great river.
Wine I have, wine I have:
Idly I drink at the eastern window.
Longingly – I think of my friends,

But neither boat nor carriage comes.


from A Hundred And Seventy Chinese Poems (1918)
