Inscribed on the Wall of the Hut by the Lakeby Chiao Jan
English version by J. P. Seaton
Original Language Chinese
If you want to be a mountain dweller...
no need to trek to India to find a mountain...
I've got a thousand peaks
to pick from, right here in this lake.
Fragrant grasses, white clouds,
to hold me here.
What holds you there,
|-- from The Shambhala Anthology of Chinese Poetry, Edited by J. P. Seaton|
