South of the River, North of the River, Ten Thousand Mountains
        Cai Yuqing 

South of the river
        North of the river
                Ten Thousand Mountains,
Rare flowers, strange plants,
        sealed with white mist.
You have explored everywhere
        secluded dark places.
At one with mountains
        spirts guard remote distance.
Tall and straight
        forever handsome,
Fighting and floating
        visited the red pines.
Sure grip, remarkable books
        I read your travel diaries,
Pause at the sweet fragrance
        marvel at your broad mind.

Jiāng nán jiāng běi shíwàn shān,
Qí huā yáocǎo bái yún fēng.
Wēi jūn tàn biàn yōu xuán jī,
Gèng lǚ shān líng hù jué zòng.
Gāo fēng zhí jì zhāng sān fēng,
Yī zhàng piāorán fǎng chìsōng.
Kuài bǎ qíshū yóujì dú,
Dùn rú gān xiá huō xīnxiōng.
