Tao Yun (~400)
High rises the Eastern Peak
Soaring up to the blue sky.
Among the rocks, an empty hollow,
Secret, still, mysterious!
Uncarved and unhewn,
Screened by nature with a roof of clouds.
Time and seasons, what things are you,
Bringing to my life ceaseless change?
I will lodge forever in this hollow
Where springs and autumns unheeded pass.
