On this last day of 2013, I finished reading the book, How to Read A Chinese Poem: A Bilingual Anthology of Tang Poetry, translated and annotated by Edward C. Chang.  Here’s a gem of a definition from page 4: “… the Chinese character that means poetry … (shi) … is composed of two parts: … “feelings in the heart” …  “words or speech.” 

May your New Year 2014 be filled with “speech of the heart.”
