From this ancient jade terrace of the immortals
the Cinnabar Hills aren't so far away
the mountains and rivers are all clouds and sunshine
the towers and pavilions are veiled in mist
by a thousand year old dancing-crane tree
on a hundred foot long rainbow arched bridge
I met Master Red Pine again
he invited me to join him on the road to Heaven
- Ch'en Tzu-ang (658-699)
