Guoqing Temple, located on Mountain Tiantai,
One among the Four Buddha’s Shrines.
I have crossed the entire territory of the dynasty,
Nowhere can compare to this place.
Withered branches run across the clouds,
The summit is covered with white snow.
A slim stream gurgling outside of the sills,
Winding and reflecting a fragmented moon.
