尋隱者不遇 A Note Left for an Absent Ecluse

賈島 Jia Dao

When I questioned your pupil, under a pine-tree,
sōng xià wèn tóng zi ,
"My teacher," he answered, " went for herbs,
yán shī cǎi yào qù 。
But toward which corner of the mountain,
zhǐ zài cǐ shān zhōng ,
How can I tell, through all these clouds ?"
yún shēn bù zhī chù 。
