Visiting Temple of Accumulated Fragrance
        Wang Wei 701-761

Where is Gathered Fragrance Temple?
Lost among cloudy peaks.
In ancient forest no human path,
Bell sounds deep in the mountains.
A stream scrapes over sharp rocks,
Sunlight chills green pines.
By an empty twisted pool at twilight,
Meditation purges poisonous dragons.
 
Guo Xiangjisi;过香积寺;
Bùzhī Xiāngjīsì, Shù lǐ rù yún fēng,
Gǔ mù wú rén jìng, Shēn shān héchù zhōng,
Quān shēng yàn wēi shí,Rì sè lěng qīngsōng,
Bómù kōng tán qū, Ān Chán zhì dú lóng.
