“Tall mountains rise in ranges of a myriad feet,
Screening out clouds red with dawn;
Seen from afar old pines stand out,
also portrayed are trees in groves.
Streams of water descend rocky peaks,
through stone gorges rush in water splashes;
In pure extremes one dislikes dangerous
and with affection gives thanks for facing
Gods and immortals in wonder uproot their
so this place is no longer without boundaries;
I only fault the precipitous stone steps,
but still remain dependent on the world.
(Cheng) Ming, called Songmen.”
