First Line: High rises the eastern peak
Last Line: Where springs and autumns unheeded pass.
Subject(s): China - Middle Ages (600 B.c.- 618 A.d.); Mountain Climbing

HIGH rises the Eastern Peak
Soaring up to the blue sky.
Among the rocks -- an empty hollow,
Secret, still, mysterious!
Uncarved and unhewn,
Screened by nature with a roof of clouds.
Times and Seasons, what things are you
Bringing to my life ceaseless change?
I will lodge forever in this hollow
Where Springs and Autumns unheeded pass.
