The Rock
        Zheng Banqiao 1673-1765

Obstinate
        this block of rock,
Resting here 
        green moss covered.
Untroubled by rain and dew,
Shrugging off frost and snow.
This garden
        how many times
                has it flourished and declined?
Flowering trees
        how many times
                have they bloomed and faded?
Just ask Mr. Stone,
He remembers everything!

 
Shí
Zhèng Bǎnqiáo 1673-1765

Wánrán yīkuài shí,
Wò cǐ tái jiē bì.
Yǔlù yī bùzhī,
Shuāngxuě yī bùshí.
Yuánlín jǐ shènghuái?
Huāshù jǐ gēngì?
Dàn wèn shí xiānshāng,
Xiānshēng jù jìde.
