„Empty hills, no one in sight,
only the sound of someone talking;
late sunlight enters the deep wood,
shining over the green moss again.“

—  Wang Wei
"Deer Fence" (鹿柴) Variant translations: No one is seen in deserted hills, Only the echoes of speech is heard. Sunlight cast back comes deep in the woods, And shines once again upon the green moss. Translated by Stephen Owen On the empty mountain, seeing no one, Only hearing the echoes of someone's voice; Returning light enters the deep forest, Again shining upon the green moss. Translated by Richard W. Bodman and Victor H. Mair

„All alone in a foreign land,
I am twice as homesick on this day
When brothers carry dogwood up the mountain,
Each of them a branch—and my branch missing.“

„A morning rain has settled the dust in Weicheng;
Willows are green again in the tavern dooryard...
Wait till we empty one more cup –
West of Yang Gate there'll be no old friends.“

—  Wang Wei
"A Song at Weicheng" (送元二使安西), as translated by Witter Bynner in Three Hundred Poems of the Tang Dynasty Variant translations: Wei City morning rain dampens the light dust. By this inn, green, newly green willows. I urge you to drink another cup of wine; West of Yang Pass, are no old friends. Mike O'Connor, "Wei City Song" in Where the World Does Not Follow<!--: Buddhist China in Picture and Poem--> (2002), p. 119 No dust is raised on pathways wet with morning rain, The willows by the tavern look so fresh and green. I invite you to drink a cup of wine again: West of the Southern Pass no more friends will be seen. Xu Yuan-zhong, "A Farewell Song" in 150 Tang Poems (1984), p. 29 Light rain is on the light dust. The willows of the inn-yard Will be going greener and greener, But you, Sir, had better take wine ere your departure, For you will have no friends about you When you come to the gates of Go. Ezra Pound, epigraph to "Four Poems of Departure", in Cathay (1915), p. 28

„I sit alone in the secluded bamboo grove
and play the zither and whistle along.
In the deep forest no one knows,
the bright moon comes to shine on me.“
