李白







Sitting Alone In Jingting Mountain
Li Bai 699-762

Flocks of birds fly high and vanish;
A single cloud, alone, calmly drifts on.
Never tired of looking at each other--
Only the Jingting Mountain and me.
 
Dú Zuò Jìngtíngshān
Lǐ Bái 699-762

Zhòng niǎo gāo fēi jìn,
Gū yún dú qù huán.
Xiāng kàn liǎng bú yàn,
Zhí yǒu Jìngtíngshān.

Notes:
Li Bai lived for a time in Xuancheng, a two hour drive southwest of Maanshan in Anhui Province. Jingtingshan is in the outskirts of Xuancheng, with the ancient Guangjiao Temple at its foot.
