“’Moonlight over the Cliffs of Jiao (Island).’
On the Yangtze River the wind and waves are calm,
within the temple on Jiao Mountain the evening bells sound;
Cooking smoke has already ceased and the lamp wicks lowered,
the mountain monks rise late to view the moon’s brightness.
Pan Simu, called Qiaolu.”
