Hey, Mountain, hey.
—The Tempest 

Han Shan must have been drinking. For he thought
there was a mountain growing in his backyard.
Look! Big rocks were being pushed up through the soil.
When he’d left his home on Cold Mountain,
he’d tried to be the perfect sage and disappear.
But now he was amazed to find Cold Mountain
being brought to him… Not so his neighbor,
Prospero. The spirits still obeyed.
