Li Bai (701-762)
The monk from Shu with his green silk lute-case, Walking west down Omei Mountain, Has brought me by one touch of the strings The breath of pines in a thousand valleys. I hear him in the cleansing brook, I hear him in the icy bells; And I feel no change though the mountain darken And cloudy autumn heaps the sky.
