Looking At Mount Tai

Rating: 2.9
How is Mountain Tai?
Its green is seen beyond State Qi and State Lu,
a distillation of creation's spirit and beauty.
Its slopes split day into Yin and Yang.
Its rising clouds billow in my chest.
Homecoming birds fly through my wide-open eyes.
I should climb to the summit
and in one glance see all other mountains dwarfed.

I guess the English translation doesn't capture as much as Chinese meter. My Chinese teacher told us that it has the neatest meter- antithesis, rhyme, tone and structure.
