Resting at My Open Window
        Hanshan Deqing

Resting at my open window I gaze out at the mountains
A thousand peaks of blue and purple rise above the pines
Without a thought or care white clouds come and go
So utterly accepting.... so totally relaxed

Juàn yǐ xū chuāng zuò kàn shān
Qiān fēng zǐ cuì chū sōng jiān
Wú xīn zòng xǔ yún lái wǎng
Hé sì rúrú tǐ gèng xián
