HH the 17th Karmapa's translation from Chinese into Tibetan: Wang Zhihuan 's poem "On the Stork Tower "


Wang Zhihuan (688-742 / Shanxi Province / China)




王之渙登鸛雀樓

白日依山盡﹐ 黃河入海流。
欲窮千里目﹐ 更上一層樓。 

On the Stork Tower

The sun along the mountain bows;
The Yellow river seawards flows.
If you’ll enjoy a grander sight,
You’d climb up to a greater height.
