I love 李白!

花間一壺酒
獨酌無相親
舉杯邀明月
對影成三人
月既不解飲
影徒隨我身
暫伴月將影
行樂須及春
我歌月徘徊
我舞影零亂
醒時同交歡
醉後各分散
永結無情遊
相期邈雲漢

auroragb,

Thank you so much. I am having a little bit of trouble reading some of the simplified characters on that page. Can you tell me if the book itself is written in simplified chinese? If so then I'll be having a little bit of trouble.

Musashi

Hi all Chinese members,

I am wondering if any of you heard of a Chinese translated version of the Japanese book Musashi. the Chinese character is 宮本武蔵 .

Please let me know if you have seen this.

Thank you.
