李 白 题 诗 水 西 寺
古 木 回 岩 楼 阁 风。
半 醒 半 醉 游 三 日
红 白 花 开 山 雨 中。
Nian Xi You

Li bai ti shi shui xi si
Gu mu hui yan lou ge feng.
Ban xing ban zui you san ri
Hong bai hua kai shan yu zhong.

Ancient trees encircle the rocks and cliffs, high towers in the wind.
For several days half drunk, half sober
Red and white blossoms open amid the mountains and rain.
