Li Po’s poems were steeped in Taoism and his love of alcohol. Although he was a talented poet, the content of most of his writings are garbage. The following poem is an exception. It is a call to action that many Christians would be wise to embrace. It has long been one of my favorites.
Life passes like a flash of lightning
Whose blaze barely lasts long enough to see.
While the earth and the sky stand still forever
How swiftly changing time flies across man’s face.
O you who sit over your full cup and do not drink,
Tell me whom are you still waiting for?
