Climbing Cloud Dragon Mountain
         Su Shi 1036-1101

Drunk, I race up
        Yellow Grass Hill.
The hill is strewn with rocks,
        like a herd of sheep.
On top I collapse in a stupor,
        a rock my bed,
To stare at the white clouds
        in the boundless sky.
My song drifts down to the valley
        on far-reaching autumn winds,
Passersby look up
        and gaze to the southeast,
Clapping their hands, they burst out laughing,
        "The prefect's gone mad!"

Zuì zhōng zǒu shàng Huángmáogǎng,
Mǎn gǎng luàn shí rú qún yáng.
Gǎng tóu zuì dǎo shí zuò chuáng,
Yǎng kàn bái yún tiān mángmáng.
Gē shēng luò gǔ qiū fēng cháng.
Lùrén jǔ shǒu dōngnán wàng,
Pāi shǒu dà xiào shǐjūn kuáng.
