Poem: To Boat on the Dongting-Lake

Dear Tai Chi-friends,

some Chinese fighters became free knight-errants. They knew how to fight and knew how to relax - one of them became the known Chinese poet - Li Bai. So if you had a hard week of training and fighting - enjoy one of his poems:

To Boat on the Dongting-Lake

An autumn night at the lake –
not a whit of mist above the water.

Wonderful it would be,
a wave could carry us into the sky.

Moonlight I would buy there –
with borrowed money.

Or sail up to the white clouds,
to buy some wine.
