Hiding Out At Cold Mountain
        Hanshan (Tang)

If I hide out at Cold Mountain
Living off mountain plants and berries,
All my lifetime
        why worry?
One fallows his karma through.
Days and months slip by like water,
Time is like sparks knocked off flint.
Go ahead and let the world change
I'm happy to sit among these cliffs.

Hánshān (Táng)

Yīzì dùn Hánshān,
Yǎng mìng cān shān guǒ.
Píngshēng hésuǒ yōu,
Cǐ shì suíyuán guò.
Ríyuè rú Zhè chuān,
Guāngyīn shí zhōng huǒ.
Zhù nǐ tiāndì yí,
Wǒ chàng yán zhōng zuò.
