山中問答

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 downstream into oblivion,
I have a world apart that is not among men.

-Li Bai (701-762, Tang Dynasty)

山中問答

問余何意棲碧山
笑而不答心自閒
桃花流水窅然去
別有天地非人間

                    李白

                 (it’s not that i don’t like poetry
it’s just that i only like
a very few poets).
