another of Mary Tang’s translations from her blog Life is But This
The Song Dynasty poet Wang An Shi knew how to write but he also knew how to live.
Mount North by Wang An Shi (1021 – 1086)
Hollowed a log for a boat with yards to spare
I lie watching the drifting moon outlines the lotus
A waft of clear scent clears the summer heat
At times a fish leaps in fright as tree nuts fall
