Writing in the 1,000 year-old tradition of the Tang Dynasty poets, Han Shan and Du Fu, Huichun Liang has brought into sharp focus the power of the unfathomable stillness of the present moment in her book Autumn, Presencing. Her poems ring with the clarity of the master's bronze bell calling monks to meditation. Yet these poems breathe in the world across time and cultures, as in "Translation," where a Grimm Fairy Tale, a Biblical image, a mythical Greek personae, and the Buddhist lotus flower mix. And in the mix is the collaboration with the artist Steven Schroeder whose paintings make a frequent appearance in Autumn, Presencing and are a perfect match for the poems, as if dropping a stone into the quiet pond of the reader who can then follow the water's ripples outward and then return to the center where "still, a story is being told." -Walter Bargen, First Poet Laureate of Missouri and author of Until Next Time

在有诗人寒山和杜甫的唐代的千年传统中写作,梁慧春一直把在此刻的,深不可测的,寂然的力量的锋利的焦点着力于她的书-"正在的秋天"中。她的诗歌用大师们的青铜的钟敲响出召唤僧人们去冥想的清脆的声音,可是这些诗歌又在超越了时间与文化的世界中呼吸,如同在"翻译家"一诗中所呈现的那样。这首诗在融汇了格林童话,《圣经》,希腊神话中的人物和佛教的莲花的意象的同时,又包含着与斯蒂文。施罗德的合作。他的画作还反复在"正在的秋天"中出现,而且是诗作的绝配。这就如同在一潭读者的心灵的静水中投入一块石头,然后读者们的思绪就能随着水的涟漪荡漾开去,而又回到那"还在陈述的故事"的中心。-沃尔特。巴根, 密苏里的第一位桂冠诗人,《直到下一次》的作者
