In the Mountains

—Li Bai [Li Po]

Why do I live among the green mountains?

I laugh and don’t answer.

My soul is calm:

It dwells in another heaven and earth

Belonging to no one.

The peach trees are in flower.

The water flows on.

—Li Bai [Li Po]

Green Mountain

– Li Po. Translated by: A. S. Kline’s

You ask me why I live on Green Mountain ?

I smile in silence and the quiet mind.
Peach petals blow on mountain streams
To earth and skies beyond Humankind.

When Rhododendron Bloom at the Vee 11.

You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain?

I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream
and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.
