Looking at the Moon and Thinking of One Far Away

Zhang Jiuling

The moon, grown full now over the sea,
Brightening the whole of heaven,
Brings to separated hearts
The long thoughtfulness of night.
It is no darker though I blow out my candle.
It is no warmer though I put on my coat.
So I leave my message with the moon
And turn to my bed, hoping for dreams.

Not entirely sure, but Zhang Jiuling was an early T'ang Dynasty poet. He lived from about 678-740 A.D.

thank you - just random curiosity, but something to keep in mind. I liked that a lot.
