In the Mountains on a Summer Day
by Li Bai, translated by Arthur Waley
From Translations from the Chinese (Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 1919, 1941).


In the Mountains on a Summer Day

Gently I stir a white feather fan,
With open shirt sitting in a green wood.
I take off my cap and hang it on a jutting stone;
A wind from the pine-trees trickles on my bare head.
