A moment of stillness.
In the following poem, the famous Tang dynasty poet, Li Po, recounts a moment of peace as he looks up at a mountain. Read the poem and then write your own four line poem about a moment of contemplation in your own life”.
Alone Looking at the Mountain
All the birds have flown up and gone;
A lonely cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the mountain and I.
