Viewing Heaven's Gate Mountains
Li Bai

Heaven gate middle cut Chu River open
Green water east flow reach here turn
Both banks blue mountain mutual face out
Lonely sail one disc sun beside come
The River Chu cuts through the middle of heaven's gate,
The green water flowing east reaches here then swirls.
On either bank the blue hills face towards each other,
The flatness of a lonely sail comes from by of the sun.
