Poems of the T'ang Dynasty

I love those poems of the Tang Dynasty.
One of my favorites...

A bitter love

How beautiful she looks, opening the pearly casement,
And how quiet she leans, and how troubled her brow is!
You may see the tears now, bright on her cheek,
But not the man she so bitterly loves.

-- Li Bai
