Text

Attributed to Chang Fang Shen (4th century)

Cliffs that rise a thousand feet without a break,
Lakes that stretches a hundred miles without a wave,
Sands that are white through all the year, without a stain,
Pine-tree woods, winter and summer, ever green,
Streams that forever flow and flow without a pause,
Trees that for twenty thousand years your vows have kept,
You have suddenly healed the pain in a traveler’s heart and moved him to sing a new song.
