Masters of The Lunar Verse – Moon Poetry Reading with Two Poets


“A Tranquil Night”

Abed, I see a silver light,

I wonder if it’s frost aground.

Looking up, I find the moon bright;

Bowing, in homesickness I’m drowned.

This is one of the Chinese moon poems we celebrated at China Exchange as part of the Mid-Autumn Festival on 17 September 2016. Poets Jennifer Wong and Mary Jean Chan presented a wonderful selection of  Chinese poems and their own contemporary writing. Together, 30 of us had a beautiful time with the words, the rhymes, the rhythm and the moon.
