Li Bai

The Ching-Ting Mountain

Flocks of birds have flown high and away; / A solitary drift of cloud, too, has gone, wandering on. / And I sit alone with the Ching-ting Peak, towering beyond. / We never grow tired of each other, the mountain and I.

– Li Bai (8th century CE), tr. Shigeyoshi Obata
