何紹其 (清朝)

















Tiger Stream Bridge
        He Shaoqi

Before my footsteps have reached the place
        my heart is already there;
The spirit of the whole mountain
        beckons me from all sides.
Solitary, strange, ancient and rare
        a universe gathered together.
But here only the tiger stream
        and the bridge over the stream.
Would I might see the old Chan master
        riding the tiger across!
The mountain moon is low now
        as large as a bamboo hat;
A spring gurgles, bubbling and splashing
        trees break up the light.
Startled
        four or five monkeys
                fall from the branches.

Zújì wèi dào xīn xiān chāo,
Yī shān língqì fēn xiāng zhāo.
Yōu qí gǔ yì wànlài xī,
Wéiyǒu hú xīxī shàng qiáo.
Yè jiān chánshī qí hǔ guò,
Shānyuè dī shí lìzi dà.
Quán shēng bèngfēi shù guāng pò,
Jīng duò xuán yuán sìwǔgè.
