Mountain Trek
        Yuan Mei 1716-1798

Ten miles of rugged peaks
        half mile of level ground,
Bid farewell to one peak
        another welcomes ahead.
These green mountains
        wrap around me
                like a cacoon,
Up ahead it appears
        no way to continue

 
Shān Xíng Zá Yǒng
Yuán Méi 1716-1798

Shílǐ Qí Qū bàn lǐ píng,
Yì fēng cái sòng yì fēng yíng.
Qīng shān sì jiǎn jiāng rén guǒ,
Bù xìn qián tóu yǒu lù xíng.

Notes:
We don't know what mountain range Yuan Mei was trekking when he wrote this poem. But not far from his home in Nanjing is the Buddhist mountain Jiuhuashan.
