Wang Wei: The Zhongnan Mountains

张瑞图 草书:王维《终南山》

《终南山》 王维


The Zhongnan Mountains

O mighty peaks with Heaven lined
A-rolling on to distant sea!
The fleecy clouds close up from behind,
Blue mists, when near, are nowhere to see.
The Central Peak is where to hold
All valleys, bright and dark, in view.
But where to pass the night so cold?
‘Cross the stream’s a woodman—”How d’ye do!”
