北青蘿 North Among Green Vines

李商隱 Li Shangyin

西
Where the sun has entered the western hills,
访
I look for a monk in his little straw hut;
But only the fallen leaves are at home,
And I turn through chilling levels of cloud
I hear a stone gong in the dusk,
I lean full-weight on my slender staff
How within this world, within this grain of dust,
Can there be any room for the passions of men?
