Romantic words By William Blake

I saw a chapel all of gold
that none did dare to enter im
and many weeping stood without
weeping mourning worshiping.

I saw a serpent rise between
The white pillars of the door
and he forced and forced and forced
down the golden hinges tore

And along the pavement sweet
Set with pearls & rubies bright
all his slimy length he drew
Till upon the altar white

Vomiting his poison out
On the bread & on the wine
so I torned into a sty
And laid me down among the swine.

Wuhan University (WHU; simplified Chinese: 武汉大学; traditional Chinese: 武漢大學; pinyin: Wǔhàn Dàxué; colloquially 武大, Pinyin: Wǔdà) is located in Wuhan, Hubei, China, and is administered by the Ministry of Education of China. It was selected by both Project 985 and Project 211 as a major receiver of state funding.[3] The university is situated at Luojia Hill, with palatial buildings blending the Chinese and Western style. It was commonly regarded as one of the most beautiful campuses and top 10 university for decades in China.[4]


Qing Guangxu Emperor's approval of establishing the Ziqiang Institute.

A congratulation calligraphy given to the first class of graduates of National Wuhan University by Cai Yuanpei
The university dates back to the Ziqiang Institute (Simplified Chinese: 自强学堂; Traditional Chinese: 自強學堂; Pinyin: Zìqiáng Xuétáng ), which was founded in 1893 by Zhang Zhidong 张之洞, governor of Hubei and Hunan Provinces in the late Qing Dynasty.[5] Later, it changed its name several times before it was named National Wuhan University in July 1928, and was among the first group of national universities in modern China. In Feb, 1929, the jurist Wang Shijie became the first president of Wuhan University. During the War of Resistance Against Japan, Wuhan University moved to Leshan, Sichuan Province and returned to Luojia Hill after the war.[6][7]
By the end of 1946, the university had six Faculties: the Faculties of liberal arts, law, sciences, engineering, agriculture and medicine. Wuhan University enjoyed a very high academic status, with Wang Shijie, Wang Xinggong and Zhou Gengsheng as its successive presidents.[7]
A number of scholars such as Gu Hongming, Zhu Kezhen, Wu Baoliang, Zha Qian, Gui Zhiting, Ye Yage, Li Siguang, Wen Yiduo, Huang Kan, Yu Dafu, Shen Congwen, Zhu Guangqian, Liu Ze, Liu Yongji, Ye Shengtao, Yang Duanliu and Li Jiannong taught here successively. According to the university, in 1948, the University of Oxford wrote an official letter to the Ministry of Education of the Chinese National Government, stating that Bachelors of liberal arts and sciences that graduated from Wuhan University with average grades above 80 could enjoy "the senior status of Oxford."[7][8]

A Notice given to Wuhan University that it will be taken under the Communist's control.
In 1952, after a general reshuffle of the colleges and departments of the higher educational institutions throughout the country, Wuhan University became a university of liberal arts and sciences directly under the administration of the Ministry of Higher Education.[9] Professor Li Da, Delegate to the First Congress of the Chinese Communist Party and a celebrated philosopher, economist and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, held the post of president of the university for 14 years. The Wuhan University School of Medicine and Tongji University Medical School jointly formed Central-south Tongji Medical College (later Wuhan Medical College), then Tongji Medical University.[7]


On August 2, 2000, with the approval of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, the new Wuhan University was established as a combination of four major universities close together ---- the former Wuhan University, the former Wuhan University of Hydraulic and Electrical Engineering (WUHEE), the former Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping (WTUSM) and the former Hubei Medical University (HBMU).[10]

labor day

~ Edgar Guest

Somebody said it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing and he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one has ever done it";
But he took off his coat and he took of his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing and he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assailyou.
But just buckle in with a bit of a girn,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Bryan, Wyoming


    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Bryan is a ghost town in Sweetwater County in the U.S. state of Wyoming. Bryan is located about 12 miles (19 km) west of Green River along the Blacks Fork River, and for a short time was the local headquarters and division point of the Union Pacific Railroad. Today, only a few concrete foundations remain.


    Union Pacific advertisement promoting connections out of Bryan, Wyoming
    As with other cities in Wyoming, squatters rushed to occupy land in Green River City in anticipation of the arrival of the transcontinental railroad in 1868. Unwilling to negotiate with the squatters, the railroad instead laid out a new town to the west of Green River along the Blacks Fork River and established it as the local headquarters of the railroad.[1] Stage service was established between Bryan and Green River and from there connecting to mines and towns throughout Wyoming.
    Once passed over for the headquarters the population in Green River dropped rapidly. Several years later Blacks Fork dried up due to a drought and the railroad was concerned that there was not enough water in Bryan to service the locomotives. The railroad was able to acquire enough land to move the headquarters to Green River and completely abandoned Bryan. Green River thrived, but Bryan's population plummeted and never recovered.[2]

Jingmen (simplified Chinese: 荆门; traditional Chinese: 荊門; pinyin: Jīngmén) is a prefecture-level city in central Hubei province, People's Republic of China. Jingmen is within an area where cotton and oil crops are planted. The population of the prefecture is 2,873,687 (2010 population census). The urban area of Jingmen City has a population of about 400,000. Jingmen is so named as in ancient times it was the gateway to Jingzhou, one of the Nine Provinces and means literally Gateway to Jingzhou.

Administrative divisions

Jingmen municipality comprises two districts, one county-level city and two counties :

City layout

Dongbao District "downtown" is located about 3 hours away from Wuhan by bus or rail. A new train service was introduced from Jingmen to Wuhan in 2004. Jingmen is very close to many great tourist attractions such as Changban Slope of Three Kingdoms fame, the Wudang Mountains, and the Ming Tomb in Zhongxiang (a World Heritage site only an hour away). As it is located in central China, Jingmen is within easy reach of almost anywhere in the country, taking about 18 hours to either Beijing or Guangzhou by train, or two hours by train to Yichang, home of the Gezhouba Dam project and Three Gorges Dam. From here travellers can fly to many destinations.
The Dongbao District "downtown" has 3 north-south parallel roads:
  • Xiangshan Dadao - The main avenue of Jingmen City. Most governmental buildings are here. Most civil functions, including hospitals, recreational areas, hotels, and the only university in Jingmen - Jingchu University of Technology, are alongside the road.
  • Changning Dadao - All big telecommunication companies set up there branches here. Also there are many cellphone shops. The Jingmen railway station is to the north of Changning Dadao.
  • Baiyun Dadao - The inner city part of National Highway 207, and a route to the Xiangfan-Jingzhou Highway.
  • Jinxia Lu - Not a main avenue, but an important street in the city centre. Lots of small shops and schools there.
Crisscrossing these three roads are the roads Xiangshan 1st to 3rd, so by using these main arteries it is possible to go almost anywhere in Jingmen. Xiangshan 3 road leads behind the Jingmen Foreign Language school and doesn't actually provide a direct link from Xiangshan Dadao to Changning Dadao.
The main commercial area is Zhongtian Street (formerly Jiefang (Liberty) Road), a pedestrian only street, which also crisscrosses the three main roads.
Jingmen is surrounded by hills within easy reach.

Haiku or Hicoo On Butterfly and Harbor

 Cattleheart Butterfly
Butterflies flutter,
Sweet contact on red petals,
Silent spring music.

The sky is sunny,
Airplanes fly, high and speedy,
Wings of butterflies.

Love is a harbor,
Faith makes it more solid,
Invest your labor.

Dark greedy eyes haunt,
Seeking preys near Kay harbor,
perfect thief snapshot.

I sneeze on warm days
not sure how things play,
kidney, heart, liver, lungs,
these organs would say
                       what outsiders wish to hear
                       no panic acts
                       I simply bear
                       the odds,
                                  what exotic page
                                  comes cross
                                  the wiggling maze,
                                  it's hypnotic to us
                                                  if i could untie
                                                  or undo
                                                  some knots and tell people why
                                                                   my other side
                                                                 shall loose the
                                                               hairdo to
                                                             feel cool.

My Creed

be my guest,
read Edgar Guest.
when plight is sailed to me,
I'm shifted to write poetry.
when fame nudges my elbow,
i believe, not much can be kept in that glow.
to have fewer secrets within,
I often criticize my past sin.
To see what my foes see,
I read what has provided for their victory.
to discover undaunted fearless spot,
I hang my stick with my own fishing rod.
I am the only one knowing what I need,
I'm serious about my personal philosophy and creed.

The Christomas of UADALARAZA
Swallows in groups have been doing confused
whirl from the black grey bells,
and above the square of Fountain,
They struggle to cast spells,
Especially when the weather is
shadowy, dull, and
packed with the whispers of autumn rains,
Yaqui crouch in the woods
under the lemon slice of moon beam,
The Beijing Beer bottles
are emptied and positioned at spidery pantry,
and the followers of tomorrow scream
as they research the ghostly garage!
 autumn rain images

the perfect poet award for week 80, thanks a lot.
for week 81 perfect poet award, i wish to nominate  Poetically Jstar
good luck.
