Mountain Poems by Li Bai (701-762)

Question And Answer on the Mountain
You ask why I nestle in the green mountains.
I laugh but answer not - my heart is serene.
Peach blossoms and flowing waters go
without a trace.
There is another Heaven and Earth beyond
the world of man.

Alone Looking at the Mountain
All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the mountain and I
