Green Mountain

You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.

    I enjoy this poem and will try to find the recommended translation by Vikram Seth, that member Mandira Mitra commented on.

    This, like so many of Li Po's work, is amazing in it's picturesque word imagery, and simple expression of universal human emotion. I wish I could read his work in the original language.

    A better translation exists. By Vikram Seth.

    You cannot give Li Po a one and claim to like poetry, it is a contradiction.
