It seems the book can deliver a viasul and mental impact while we are approaching the Tang Poems. This reminds of the English translation of the Persian Poem by Edward Fitzgerald: The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam. Ancient Oriental wisdom can shine through ages after ages from the East to the West in beautiful English too if the right format of expressing can be achieved.

in this poem Thoreau describes the moon as a beacon that God has placed for him to see where the path of life is leading him. He conveys that even if he travels down the wrong path the moon is still there to lead him back.
