"In the evening he took his fine cane

And paused with his guests at the head of Tiger Stream

Urged us to listen for the sound in the mountains

Then went along by the water back to his house

       Profusion of lovely flowers in the wilds

       Vague sound of birds in the valley

When he sits down tonight the empty hills will be still

And the pine wind suggests autumn." - Poem by Wang Wei
