Why not?

Li Po translated by Sam Hamill:

Summer Days in the Mountains

Too lazy even to move a feather fan,
stripped naked in the deep green forest,

even my headband left on a stonewall somewhere,
I let the pine winds ruffle my hair.

Sometimes when I read Li Po I am reminded of Raymond Carver. And sometimes when I read Raymond Carver I am reminded of Li Po.
