七言絶句 was first a Chinese type of poetry, is it in the same format to the Japanese one? Yi Zhe Wu 17:38, 30 July 2007 (CDT)

That's correct - it is referring to what is originally the same type of poetry, although I am not yet well versed on its subsequent development in China. If you know more of that history and can develop the article further, I'm sure that would add a great deal. It may subsequently be appropriate to retitle the article if you can think of a more generic term. Kind regards Graham Nelson 11:27, 4 August 2007 (CDT)
