Du Fu Short Poems
Famous Short Du Fu Poems. Short poetry by famous poet Du Fu. A collection of the all-time best Du Fu short poems
by Li Bai
I met Du Fu on a mountaintop
in August when the sun was hot.
Under the shade of his big straw hat
his face was sad--
in the years since we last parted,
he'd grown wane, exhausted.
Poor old Du Fu, I thought then,
he must be agonizing over poetry again.
