Trip to Mount Tai
— Written in the Autumn of 2012 by Dr. Yuanhui Sun
In my childhood, my mother took me from Beijing to visit my hometown, a small village in Tai’an city,
Shandong Province of China. The clear ponds, small bridges across the river, old houses and it’s
courtyard.... still engrave in my memory.
Now I am already in my fifties, living overseas for many years, and only dreamed about returning to my
hometown. Finally, my long-cherished wish has been fulfilled in 2012,.
I worshipped the passionate land of my hometown on bended knees and looked up at undulating chains
of Mount Tai, all sorts of feelings welling up from the bottom of my heart.
Mount Tai, Mount Tai
You are Father’s mountain and Mother’s mountain
Your towering peaks are Father’s raised head
Your rolling hills are Mother’s widely open heart
Greeting pine trees on ,cliffs accentuate Father’s hospitality
The breeze you bring tells about Mother’s tender love
Your torrential Dragon Pond Waterfall narrates Father’s suffering during his life journey to the Northeast
escaping his hometown
Your red beans in the green shade dotted with Mother’s call for her children
The temples on your hills are Father’s prayers for the future
Your puffs of smoke from the incense burners are Mother’s blessings for the loved ones
Mount Tai, Mount Tai
You are Children’s mountain and Hometown’s mountain
Clouds jade plate is Children’s admiration for mountain peaks
Clear springs in the mountain are Children’s thoughts for parents
The sunset glow is Children’s praise for you
The rising sun is the hope children give to you
Mount Tai, Mount Tai
You are a towering mountain and magnificent mountain
Your steep Eighteen Bends narrate unswerving determination of our ancestors
Your forever-shining Peak of the Heavenly Emperor exhibits boldness and generosity of mountain chains
Your bold Stone Forest legends the fearlessness of truth against to evil
Your upstanding mountain records our nation’s unyieldingness against violence
Mount Tai, Mount Tai
I love you, Mount Tai; I adore you, Mount Tai
You are Father’s mountain, Mother’s mountain and Children’s mountain
You are towering mountain and magnificent mountain
You are my Hometown’s Mountain
