侬勒镜子里个影像  是我顶顶好个诗篇  渠消失得箇能介快  是我爱倷压末一遍

Wu-Suzhou poem, translated by 吴语协会

Wu-Suzhou love poem, for two slanted eyes that illuminate this Chinese province. She is tall and distinguished, and wears as jewels only two small gold rings hanging from her ears. This Chinese is magic, people stop by seeing it, it is certainly a fairy! It seems that it is there, in Suzhou, that they all born! This dialect of Suzhou, gives to my little mirror poem, all the weight of its simplified sinograms.

The wu, has had a great historical importance, especially during the Ming period. Suzhou is a city in Jiangsu, in the east of China, 100 km from Shanghai, which has 10 million inhabitants. It is the cradle of wu culture. It is a city with many canals.
