Proverbs and Poems in Frost's Descent
by Du Mu
Going up to the top of the cold mountain along meandering pathways,
I see a few houses hidden among the clouds.
I stop my carriage to enjoy the beautiful scene of red maple forests,
The maple leaves seem redder than flowers in February.
This poem means the poet is very fond of maple leaves. It means enjoying the scene is even more important than going on with his journey. The pathway, the maple forest, the white clouds and the households hidden among the clouds form a beautiful autumn picture.
