[204] Down to the stream to watch the jade flow

by Han-shan (Cold Mountain)

English version by Red Pine
Original Language Chinese

or back to the cliff to sit on a boulder
my mind like a cloud remains unattached
what do I need in the faraway world

-- from The Collected Songs of Cold Mountain, Translated by Red Pine
