Sky River: Poems of Li He is a new English translation of all known poems of Li He (790-816). He had left about one thousand poems to his friend before he died, but only 224 poems are extant. This translation attempts to preserve the essence and identity of the originals by providing rhymes and following the rhyming patterns chosen, when appropriate.
