- Du Fu
A VIEW OF TAISHAN
The ancient dukedoms are everywhere green,
Inspired and stirred by the breath of creation,
With the Twin Forces balancing day and night.
...I bare my breast toward opening clouds,
I strain my sight after birds flying home.
When shall I reach the top and hold
All mountains in a single glance?
- Salvador Dali, Crepuscular Old Man, 1917-18
