Austin Smith

Traveling on the Mountain

山行

远上寒山石径斜,

白云生处有人家。

停车坐爱枫林晚,

霜叶红于二月花



Traveling on the Mountain

Far up the cold mountain a rock path winds,White clouds breathe life into the few dwellings.

Stopping my horse, sitting, loving the maple forest deep into the night,

The frost-coated leaves seemed redder than spring flowers.
