Liǔ Zōngyuán (Táng)
Qiān shān niǎo fēijué,
wàn jìng rén zōng miè.
Gū zhōu suō lì wēng,
dú diào hán jiāng xuě.
Traces of birds are no longer seen in a hundrend mountains and footprints of human beings disappear on a thousand paths. On a snowy day, there is a boat and an old fisherman on the river. He is angling alone in the big snow, wearing a palm bark rain cape and a bamboo leaf hat.
The poet depicts such a scene for us: a completely white world obscured by thick snowflakes. Clean and freezing as the wild is, it also gives a feeling of open and quietness. A proud and lonely old man is fishing attentively in his small boat despite of the heavy snow and freezing cold. This poem not only depicts the scene, but also the high-hearted pride of the poet. It is entrusted with the poet’s desire of breaking away from the mundane world and staying aloof from the mortal life.
