Zazen on Ching-t’ing Mountain
By Li Po

The birds have vanished down the sky.
Now the last cloud drains away.
We sit together, the mountain and me,
until only the mountain remains.
Zazen on Ching-t’ing Mountain” by Li Po, translated by Sam Hamill, appears in Crossing the Yellow River: Three Hundred Poems from the Chinese (BOA Editions Ltd., 2000).
