I also like these Chinese poems, 李清照「南歌子」, 王維「竹里館」 and 杜牧「清明」. It is quite refreshing for me to read these familiar poems in English verse. Thank you for your translation! I’m also impressed other winners’ works, especially, Hadyn’s work on Joséphin Soulary’s sonnet. I recently come to know rather neglected his name and work in the shadow of Baudelaire. As I’ve just started to read his Sonnets humouristiques, I’m very glad to see its English translation here. Thank you for your work and please keep posting Soulary’s sonnets here… Reply Talbot February 4, 2022 You’re very welcome, and thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed them. Reply Cheryl Corey February 1, 2022 Congratulations to all! I feel very honored to achieve fourth place. Reply Michael Pietrack February 2, 2022 Congrats to all!
