By Wang Wei

Its massive height near the City of Heaven

Joins a thousand mountains to the corner of the sea.

Clouds, when I look back, close behind me,

Mists, when I enter them, are gone.

A central peak divides the wilds

And weather into many valleys.

...Needing a place to spend the night,

I call to a wood-cutter over the river.


太乙近天都, 连山接海隅。

白云回望合, 青霭入看无。

分野中峰变, 阴晴众壑殊。

欲投人处宿, 隔水问樵夫。
