Alone Looking at the Mountain
Li Po

All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other—
Only the mountain and I.

Lovely. I wish I had a mountain nearby.

Love the poetry of Li Po. It still speaks to us today.

June is a month of Chinese poetry on a discussion forum I am hosting. You will be welcome to visit and share the knowledge my friend, Cigeng, is providing in Chinese characters, pin'yin (transliteration) and English translation. If you are on LinkedIn, please come and find us at ‘A Voyage of Discovery’. I hope that is not too distracting from Li Po's solitude, which makes me crave more and I doubt I am the only one. Thank you.

Few words; much said. Good for me.
