Passing Tianmen Street in Chang'an
and Seeing A Distant View of Zhongnan Mountains

Bai Juyi 774-846
 
The snow has gone from Zhongnan; Spring has almost come.
Lovely in the distance its blue colors, against the brown of the streets.
A thousand coaches, ten thousand horsemen pass down the Nine Roads;
Turns his head and looks at the mountains--not one man!
 
Guò Tiānmén Jiē
Bái Jūyì 774-648

Xuě jìn Zhōngnán yòu yù chūn,
Yáo lián cuì sè duì hóng chén.
Qiān chē wàn mǎ jiǔ qú shàng,
Huí shǒu kàn shān wú yì rén.
