Text is derived from Writing Down What I See by Yuan Hongdao
The Setting sun brings a pallor to the face of autumn;
Floating clouds gather quickly into clusters.
They slant down, veiling the trees.
Only two of three mountains still visible in the haze.
My horse glances back at the bridge-spanned river;
A group of monks returns along a path of pine trees.
The cliff is too high – I can see no temple;
Suddenly, through the mist, I hear a temple bell.
