With his naked dagger he could hold a multitude.“

In the deep forest no one knows,
the bright moon comes to shine on me.“

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.“

渭城朝雨浥轻尘,客舍青青柳色新。 劝君更尽一杯酒,西出阳关无故人。 "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 (2002), p. 119 No dust is raised on pathways wet with morning rain, The willows by the tavern look so fresh and green.

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.

„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
空山不見人,但聞人語響。 返景入深林,復照青苔上。 "Deer Fence" (鹿柴), trans. Burton Watson 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

„The bright moon shines between the pines.
The crystal stream flows over the pebbles.“

—  Wang Wei
明月松間照,清泉石上流。 "Autumn Twilight in the Mountains" (山居秋暝), trans. Kenneth Rexroth

„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.“

—  Wang Wei
独在异乡为异客,每逢佳节倍思亲。 遥知兄弟登高处,遍插茱萸少一人。 "On the Mountain Holiday Thinking of My Brothers in Shan-tung" (九月九日忆山东兄弟), trans. Witter Bynner Variant translation: To be a stranger in a strange land: Whenever one feasts, one thinks of one's brother twice as much as before. There where my brother far away is ascending, The dogwood is flowering, and a man is missed. "Thinking of My Brother in Shantung on the Ninth Day of the Ninth Moon", in The White Pony, ed. Robert Payne
