Zhang Daqian (Chang Dai-chien) 1899-1983
POEM IN RUNNING SCRIPT
signed shujun Zhang Yuan, with two seals of the artist, yuan, daqian

Aritist Inscription:
How have affairs changed over the years?
Even Buddha seems aged and weary.
With his magical bowl he tamed the Dragon;
With his powers he guards the Pigeon King.
Beyond the Jade Pass is a dusty vastness;
The Dang River is a roiling whiteness.
On the collapsed pagoda no bells ring;
A profound darkness confronts the sun setting.

A poem on the West Qianfo cave site in Dunhuang, recorded for Master Yimin's instruction and correction.
