Cold Mountain Poem Twenty by Han-Shan.

Translated by Gary Snyder

.

Some critic tried to put me down -
"Your poems lack the basic truth of Tao"
And I recall the old-timers
Who were poor and didn't care.
I have to laugh at him,
He misses the point entirely,
Men like that
Ought to stick to making money.

    @language learner Nice reading. Your Arabic accent comes out when you pronounce R haha.

    @Hypo Pan Nice reading. And thank you, I didn't know Tao was pronounced like that.

    @Sophie苏菲的世界 Good reading Sophie. I would recommend you slow down a little and focus on the enunciation of each word so your reading is clearer. 👍

    @abier Great reading Abier. I'd just recommend you adjust your pronunciation of "lack" as it sounded more like "lock". 👍

    @language learner Don't hide it lol. I mentioned it because it was nice to hear. Remember, the focus is on speaking clearly. The accent doesn't matter. 😉

    @Doria So nice to see your reading again Doria. Just try to enunciate each syllable to make your pronunciation clearer. Good job. 👍

    @Esraa Abo El fotouh Good effort Esra. 👍 I would recommend focusing more on each word so you fully enunciate it. By the way, it sounds really windy or is that a fan?

    @ВаленТина Никити Thank you for your reading. English spoken with a Russian accent is so cool. 😎, I would just recommend working on your pronunciation of "misses", "entirely", and "ought". 👍
