Snow atop the Southern Mountains
How fair the gloomy mountainside!
Snow-crowned peaks float above the cloud.
The forest’s bright in sunset dyed,
With evening cold the town’s overflowed.
Remnant Snow Atop Mt. Zhongnan
Fair is the shady slope
of Mt. Zhongnan, where
accumulated snow kisses
clouds. Atop trees and woods
the sky clears up; the town
is colder as dusk
Viewing the Snow on the Zhongnan Mountain
’Tis a nice view on the ubac of th’ Mountain
On which the snow scrapers the clouds in heaven.
The setting sun shines o’er the woods aft snowfall,
It gets colder in Chang’an City at night fall.
Watching Fading Snow on Zhongnan Mountain
So pretty are north peaks of Zhongnan Mount,
Accumulating snow float towards the clouds.
Outside the woods it become much sunny,
Inside the town coldness has crawled dusky.
Looking at Snows on Zhongnan Mountain
The shady side of Zhongnan is a charm;
Peak snows float over clouds like white long arm.
On mount woods after snow the sun shines bright;
In town the men’s feel colder still at night.
Gazing at the South Hill
The South Hill casts a shade below;
The ice does floating clouds uphold.
The forest shines after the snow;
The town donning the dusk feels cold.
