Visiting DaiTianshan But Daoshi Not There
On Going To See A Taoist Master In The DaiTian Mountains 
But Not Finding Him
        Li Bai 699-762

A dog barking and the sound of water;
peach blossoms heavy with dew.

In these deep woods, deer can be seen;
at noon along a stream, I hear no bell.

Wild bamboo divides gray clouds;
waterfalls hang from blue peaks.

No one knows where you've gone;
disheartened, I lean against a second,
now a third pine.
 
Fǎng DàiTiānshān Dàoshi Bù Yù
Lǐ Bǒ 699-762

Guǎnfèi shuǐ shēng zhōng,
Táohuā dài yǔ nóng:
Shù shēn shí jiàn lù,
Xī wǔ bù wén zhōng.
Yě zhú fēn qīng ǎi,
Fēiquán guà bì fēng;
Wúr rén zhī suǒ qù,
Chóu yǐ liǎng sān sōng.
