[TRANSLATION]山中问答 – Question and Answer in the Mountain


Question and Answer in the Mountain

Author: Bai Li(AD701-AD762, Tang Dynasty)

Translator: Lei Fan 2017 in Chicago

Someone asks me why I live in the emerald mountain,

I give no answer with a smile, as my heart is at rest.

Peach blossoms flow away in a stream quietly,

This is a place like heaven, not for mortals to stay.






问余何意栖碧山, 笑而不答心自闲。

桃花流水杳然去, 别有天地非人间。
