But some were known, including Wang Wei’s “Farewell”

下馬飲君酒

問君何所之

君言不得意

歸卧南山陲

但去莫復問

白雲無盡時

Pausing in my journey to share a drink with you, dear friend,

I ask where your journey will bring you;

You say you are weary of striving,

that you are returning to the shelter of mountains in the south.

Be on your way and ask me nothing more, you say.

Overhead, above us both, the clouds are endless, infinite.
