Departing from Baidi in the Morning
by Li Bai, translated from Chinese by Wikisource
Poem written by Li Bai while sailing back down the Yangtze River, through the Three Gorges, on his way home from exile.

This morning, I depart the town of Baidi, engulfed by vibrant clouds.

I return to far away Jiangling within a single day!

From both banks, the steady sound of shrieking monkeys fills the air.

Our little boat has already carried me past thousands of hilltops.
