Trekking Over Cloud Peak
        Li Junmin 1176-1260

Rain scattered by Midnight squall, sky crisp and blue,
At dawn, under half moon, I cross over Cloud Peak.
Beyond cleft in mountain see the vista below,
Thread of Yellow River approaches on River God's palm.
 
Guò Yútái
Yébàn fēng chuī jìsè kāi,
Xiǎo lái cányuè guò Yútái.
Liánshān duàn wài kàn píngyě,
Yī xiàn huáng liú zhǎng shàng lai.

Notes:
Yuntai is the north peak of Huashan.

The River God's palm refers to the fable that the River God sundered Huashan in two to let the Yellow river pass through, in the process leaving his palm print on a peak called 仙掌崖 Xianzhangya, Celestial Palm Cliff.
