Gazing Afar at Wuzhen Temple
        Zhang Ji 766-830

Towering above, and facing
                        the gateway of my inn,
The Peak for Gathering Jade links up
                        with hidden Buddhist shrine.
To no purpose, coming, going,
                        riding official horses!
Not allowed a single inch
                        of travel that is mine.
 
Yuǎnkàn Wùzhēnsì
Zhāng Jí 766-830

Cǎi yù fēng lían fósì yōu,
Gāogāo xíedùi yì ménlóu.
Wúduān lái qù qí guān mǎ,
Cūnbù jiào shēn bùdé yóu.
