[TRANSLATION]送范山人归泰山 – See off Hermit Fan back to Mount Tai.


See off Hermit Fan back to Mount Tai.

With a purely white crane under his arm,

My friend Hermit Fan returns Mount Tai.

On my first look he is like a piece of cloud,

Floating quietly among those cyan bluffs.

Momentarily, I see him passes the Sky Gate,

Peak of Sun Gaze is so close for him to clime.

The lofty mountains gradually turn blurred,

When can we meet again for the next time?
