Overnight At Mountain Temple
        Jia Dao 793-865

Massed mountains tower in the cold light,
A simple study facing this sight.
Shooting stars penetrate sparse trees,
The moon saunters toward recoiling mist.
To this summit few visitors come,
No cranes flock to the lofty pines.
Only one eighty year old monk,
Who never hears of worldly affairs.�
 
Sù Shānsì
Jiǎdào 763-865

Zhòng xiù sǒng hánsè,
Jīng lú xiàng cǐ fēn.
Liū xīng tòu shū mù,
Zǒu yuè nìxíng yún.
Juédǐng rén lái shǎo,
Gāo sōng hè bù
Yī sēng nián bāshí,
Shìshì wèicéng wén.
