Deer Fence

by Wang Wei

English version by Stephen Owen
Original Language Chinese

No one is seen in deserted hills,
only the echoes of speech are heard.
Sunlight cast back comes deep in the woods
and shines once again upon the green moss.

-- from An Anthology of Chinese Literature: Beginnings to 1911, Translated by Stephen Owen
