Many poets in Tang Dynasty such as Cen Sen, Du Fu and Gao Shi used to express their strong emotions by writing poems on the pagoda.
The poem written by Cen Sen reads :“As if spouted out of the ground. The pagoda towers high alone. Emerging above the common world. The sheer steps have wound and flown. Dominating the country around. Awesome like the work of a demon. Its four corners screen the sun. Its seventh storey touches heaven. Bellow, the soaring birds we hear. Bellow, the scary wind we hear.”
The poem written by Li Bai reads :“Standing on the top of the pagoda, which shoots into the sky. For hundreds of meters high, I can almost reach the stars and the moon. With the stretched hands of mine. For fear of awaking people in the heaven, I dare not speak loud at night?”
The poem written by Gao Shi reads :“mounting the pagoda, I am astonished by the height. With the wind blowing around me. I enjoy the view in delight. All the palaces appear in front of me, and all the mountains and rivers within my sight.”
The poem written by Chu Guangxi reads :“I am surpassing the gate of the Heaven, with geese flying under me. The mountains waving up and low, and so small the palaces seem to be.”
Du Fu excelled all his companions. He recited his poem that marvels others. It reads :“Higher up I am flying across the heaven with the howling wind passing along. I can see the dipper stars in the north, and the Milk Way in the west flowing with a song. I feel as if were Xi He driving the sun a whip in hand, and Shao Hao traveling in the clear autumn I felt so strong. All of a sudden, the Qinling Mountains are out of my sight, and Jing, Wei Rivers are cut out before long. With everything merging together in the bird's view, how can I distinguish the capital town?”
