Mountain View

Through the opening of Mount Tianmen, flows the Chu River

Turning around from its eastward course, here comes the turquoise water

Along both sides of the riverbank, green ridges are lush in sight

Over the horizon, a solitary sail shows up alight

~ Translated by Dot, from Li Bai’s “View of Mount Tianmen,” a poem written in the Tang dynasty


~ 李白 (唐朝) <<望天门山>>
