李白







Jade Steps Resentment
        Li Bo 699-762

Snow-white dew 
         born on Jade steps,
Penetrates 
        silk-gauze stockings.
Unsated
        she lowers gossamer screen,
Carved in jade
         She explores 
                  the autumn moon.

Lǐ Bó 699-762

Yùjiē shēng bái lù,
Yè jiǔ qīn luó wà.
Yù xià shuǐ jīng lián,
Línglóng wàng Qiu yuè.

Notes:
The photo is of the balustrade of the 大明宮 Dàmínggōng, Great Bright Palace, first built by the first Tang emperor 太宗 Tàizōng in 634 as a separate palace for his wife. In 663, the second Tang emperor 高宗 Gao Zong made it his main palace.
