Dream and Poetry

It's all ordinary experience,
All ordinary images.

By chance they emerge in a dream,
Turning out infinite new patterns.

It's all ordinary feelings,
All ordinary words.

By chance they encounter a poet,
Turning out infinite new verses.

Once intoxicated,
One learns the strength of wine,

Once smitten,
One learns the power of love:

You cannot write my poems
Just as I cannot dream your dreams.

Hu Shih (1891-1962)
