Joke about Chinese Classical Poems
to Wang Lun
by Li Po
Li Po’s leaving by boat.
Suddenly, there goes a cheerful song by the bank.
So deep is Peach Blossom Lake,
but the depth equals not Li Po’s appreciation to Wang Lun’s farewell.
Tang Poetries are the great treasures the ancient Chinese left us. However, the language they used is much different from modern Chinese official language and daily language in terms of the choice of lexical resources, sounds and grammar because they were composed long time ago. As a result, they sound strange and difficult to understand. When I was a student, the teachers used to say that we should learn classical Chinese as a foreign language.
After years of hard work, we can enjoy Tang Poetries’ beauty. Yet, I understand the difficulties kids learn classical poems. Chinese school kids are forced to, because of the tests, memorize large amount of classical texts, which are foreign languages to them. As a result, they hate classical poems and those ancient poets. Kids are smart. They also compose poetries. I would like you to read the poetry written by them that resembles a Tang Poetry.
to Li Po
by the kids
Li Po’s taken the boat without paying.
Suddenly, I kick him off my ship.
So deep is Peach Blossom Lake.
Therefore, the death of Li Po is fairly guaranteed.
