My Retreat at Chung-Nan
By Witter Bynner and Kiang Kung-hu, trans.
 
From “Poems by Wang Wei”
From the Chinese

MY heart in middle age found the Way,
And I came to dwell at the foot of this mountain.
When the spirit moves, I wander alone
Where beauty is known only to me.
I will walk till the water checks my path,        5
Then sit and watch the rising clouds,
And some day meet an old woodcutter,
And talk and laugh and never return.
