PASSING T'IEN-MEN STREET IN CH'ANG-AN
AND SEEING A DISTANT VIEW OF
CHUNG-NAN 1 MOUNTAIN
The snow has gone from Chung-nan ; spring is almost come.
Lovely in the distance its blue colours, against the brown of the streets.
A thousand coaches, ten thousand horsemen pass down the Nine Roads ;
Turns his head and looks at the mountains, — not one man !
1 Part of the great Nan Shan range, fifteen miles south of Ch'ang-an.
