Wei Yingwu: Mail This Off to Mt. Quanjiao, A Daoist Holy Man in the Mountains

Mail Off to Quan Jiao, a Daoist Holy Man in the Mountains

寄 全 椒 山 中 道 士
今 朝 郡 斋 冷
忽 念 山 中 客。
涧 底 束 荆 薪
归 来 煮 白 石。
欲 持 一 瓢 酒
远 慰 风 雨 夕。
落 叶 满 空 山
何 处 寻 行 迹?
Ji Quan Jiao Shan Zhong Dao Shi

Jin zhao jun zhai leng
Hu nian shan zhong ke.
Jian di shu jing xin
Gui lai zhu bai shi.

Yu chi yi piao jiu
Yuan wei feng you xi.
Luo ye man kong shan
He chu xun xing ji?

 

Mail Off to Quan Jiao, a Daoist Holy Man in the Mountains

Today at dawn, very cold Daoist library
Suddenly think of a travelers among the mountains.
At the bottom of a ravine, bind bushes for kindling
Come back to cook shelled rice.

Want to hold one ladle of wine
Comfortable inside from the wind and rain, want to share a far-off sunset.
Fallen leaves fill the empty mountains
Who on the outside looks for your whereabouts?
