Poem 夜宿山寺 | Staying the Night in a Mountain Temple


Wangwu Mountain, by Wang Yu.

夜宿山寺


李白 (701 — 762)



危楼高百尺,


手可摘星辰。


不敢高声语,


恐惊天上人。



Staying the Night in a Mountain Temple


Li Bai (701 – 762)


From building of precipitous height,


a hand can pluck stars out sky.


Men dare not raise their voices,


lest they startle the ones on high.



The picture is Wangwu Mountain, taken by Wang Yu.
