使至塞上 - 王维
The Envoy Arrives at the Borderlands - Wang Wei
I travel by cart alone to the hinterlands,
our colony extends through Junyan sea.
Wind lifts clumps of grass out of Han territory,
and geese flying home enter foreign skies.
A pillar of smoke rises above the great desert,
and a round sun falls into the stretched river.
In this remote area I encounter military scouts,
I learn their commander remains at Yanran mountain.
