Question and Answer on the Mountain
You ask me why I stay on the green mountain;
My heart at leisure, I smile and make no reply.
As peach blossoms drift down into oblivion,
I have a world apart that is not among men.
-Li Bai (701-762, Tang Dynasty)
(it’s not that i don’t like poetry, not really, it’s
just that i only like
a very few poets).
