Works involving Chinese poetry

All following works involving Chinese poetry include my personal English translations on their respective pages. Please note that instead of adhering strictly to the original texts, my translations embody my interpretations, occasionally taking artistic liberties, as a creative artist. Consequently, they can serve as guides to understanding how I construe my own compositions.
