Green Mountain

Rating: 2.9
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. Also, I felt strongly about giving this poem a good rating and I became a member so I could do so.

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.

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