Help with Chinese poetry recs?

So I have a character in a book who wants to write poetry, only she's a native Mandarin speaker who grew up from birth to 13 somewhere not far from Shanghai.

I need help figuring out some poetry and literature she would have read and finding decent English translations. Does anyone have any recs for either? Or for any favorite Chinese-to-English poetry translators in general?

Also hey in other news I'm in Lisbon this week for Comic-Con Portugal! Lmk if you're in the vicinity. :D
