梦李白二首 其二

Li Bai(李白) and Du Fu(杜甫), the two brightest superstar in Tang dynasty, the two most popular poets through Chinese history, they enjoyed a very intimate brotherhood in between. This poem is one of the two condolence poems by Du Fu, when he heard the rumor that Li Bi passed away in a shipwreck.

Du Fu choose his adept 5 characters(五言) to express his deep feeling toward Li Bai, with decent three paragraphs.

梦李白二首 其二
杜甫

浮云终日行,游子久不至。
三夜频梦君,情亲见君意。

告归常局促,苦道来不易。
江湖多风波,舟楫恐失坠。
出门搔白首,若负平生志

冠盖满京华,斯人独憔悴。
孰云网恢恢,将老身反累。
千秋万岁名,寂寞身后事
