  • The Selected Poems of Tu Fu


    Tu Fu.


     New Directions: 1989. First edition. Hardcover in a dust jacket. Near fine.


    "It’s bone-bitter cold, and late, and falling
    frost traces my gaze all bottomless skies.

    Smoke trails out over distant salt mines.
    Snow-covered peaks slant shadows east.

    Armies haunt my homeland still, and war
    drums throb in this far-off place. A guest

    overnight here in this river city, I return
    again to shrieking crows, my old friends."
