I see no reason not to call this verified; I've completely checked it against "The New Poetry" edition, and found it without flaw. It would be nice to compare it against the first publication, but this edition of the poem as copied from The New Poetry is fine.--Prosfilaes (talk) 17:39, 9 February 2009 (UTC)


Could use link to the original Chinese and more literal translation. Could certainly use correction of author link from "Lo Bai" to Li Bo, Li Po, or Li Bai. -LlywelynII (talk) 16:48, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

The original is available at the Chinese Wikisource site: 長干行. Too bad this page is locked so I can't add it to the content page. Frigoris (talk) 03:57, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
I'll add the IW link, but a literal translation is for another page.--Prosfilaes (talk) 22:45, 9 September 2010 (UTC)
Umm, this poem was written by Ezra Pound in English, not by a Chinese author. So there's no Chinese original. Icarus of old (talk) 21:25, 3 April 2013 (UTC)
