Why no mention of 龜雖壽 (Though the Tortoise Lives Long) or 短歌行 (Short Song Style)? They're on the Poety of Cao Cao Wikipedia page. Is there a chance that page is inaccurate in attributing those to him?

No, those are indeed his poems. However, I started the thread with the idea to post my own translations, so I didn't include ones that other people translated. However, feel free to add them here, attributed to the original translator, of course.

My mistake. Upon double-checking, your OP made that fairly evident. I would submit them myself, but the translator appears to be uncredited on that aforementioned page.

Glad to know that they were indeed the work of Cao Mengde. I enjoyed both of them. Your translation of Haoli Xing is probably my favorite of his, though. I appreciate all of your efforts to make these pieces more accessible to us unilingual English speakers.
