Deep in the ocean fishes are in heaven
10 
A lingering cloud quietly clearing away
11 
Take a rest and have a tea
12 
The mountain when we were enjoying summer fruits – where is it?
The stone when we were fishing in the autumn sea – is it still there?
13 
Mountains are peeking out of clouds in the east
Shimmering through the trees – what a scenery of Nanhu!
14 
Wind chasing away the rain, unveiling the mountain fort
Clouds darken the light, roaring thunder on earth
After the rain where did the dragon go
In the fresh grass around the pond countless frogs are croaking
15 
From the front it looks like a peak, from the side like a ridge
How different it looks from far or close, from high or low
You’ll never know the true shape of Lushan
Where ever you are
16 
Deep in the mountains white gathering clouds
Nightingales in the woods filling my ears with songs
How can I stand this without getting crazy
Why not facing the rocks and try to empty my mind
17 
Where fishes swirl around, you see the water roil
Where birds whirl around, you see feathers fall
18 
Nothing, emptiness
19 
Life, vitality
20 
Mountain
21 
What's this?
22 
When the hen feels cold, it climbs into a tree
When a duck feels cold, it dives into the water
23 

Schläft ein Lied in allen Dingen
Die da träumen fort und fort
Und die Welt hebt an zu singen
Triffst du nur das Zauberwort
(Joseph von Eichendorff: »Wünschelrute«)

In the thick weed a flower is quietly blooming
36 
When Big Dipper appears in the northeastern sky, spring is here – and hope

Being satisfied with yourself – a good way to grow old
38 
One more time!
