Poetry in Cyberspace Day

"I heard my love was going to Yang-chou
And went with him as far as Ch'u-shan.

For a moment when you held me fast in your outstretched arms
I thought the river stood still and did not flow."

(Once attributed to the woman poet, Tzu Yeh, but now some of the large collection appears to have been written by a group of women from Soochow and Nanking, who called them "Tzu Yeh Songs" ( China: 3rd-6th century )
