Ascending Peak Taibai from the west,
Reaching the top until the sunset.
Star Venus converses with me,
Then slides open the Gate of Sky.
I wish to ride the chilly wind,
Emerging from the floating clouds.
The moon is within one hand’s reach,
Mountains can not stop my strides.
Mt.Wugong has left far behind,
When shall I return from heaven again?
