The Cave Where Heaven is Hidden

Layered cliffs,
Sliced to reveal greenish gemstone;
Who was it in the past
Who drilled and sculpted here?
So dark and deep,
They exposed this lone cave.
With space aplenty
For a hundred people!
Towering peaks,
Linked mountains all around,
And raging Yangtze torrent splashing in!
When Yu Qing wished
To write his book,
He came here;
How many years did he take?

Wen Tong (1019-1079)
