As Bystander Sees It

A range from the front; a ridge from the wing

Although the same mountain, different angles render different views

You don’t realize the truth of Mount Lu

Only because you are in the depths of it

~ Translated by Dot, from Su Shi’s “A Poem on The Wall of West Wood,” which he inscribed to West Wood Temple in the Song dynasty


~ 蘇軾 (宋代) <<題西林壁>>
