Entertaining Oneself

You ask me, why I live in the Mount Bi

I smile with no answer, while my heart is free

Peach blooms in season, creeks flow out of sight

Here in the mountains, life departs from earthly plight

~ Translated from Li Bai’s “Q & A in the Mountain,” written in the Tang dynasty

問余何意棲碧山,笑而不答心自閒。
桃花流水杳然去,別有天地非人間。

~ 李白 (唐朝) <<山中問答>>
