Went to See a Daoist Priest on Sky-Capped Mountain But Missed Him
        Li Bo 699-762
A dog barks 
        amidst the sound of water;
Peach blossoms blush 
        in the morning dew.
Deep in the woods 
        every now and then I see a deer;
Noon comes to the stream 
        but I hear no bell.
Wild bamboo 
        cuts through the blue mist;
A gushing cascade 
        hangs over the green peak.
No one knows 
        where he has gone.
Saddened
        I lean against a pine tree
                then another
                        then another.

Lǐ Bó 699-762

Quǎnfèi shuǐshēng zhong,
Táohuā dài lù nóng.
Shù shēn shí jiàn lù,
Xī wǔ bù wén zhōng.
Yě zhú fēn qīng ǎi,
Fēi quǎn guà bì fēng.
Wú rén zhī suǒ qù,
Chóu yǐ liǎn sān sōng.
