Li Po
Green Mountain

You ask me why I dwell in the green mountain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream
and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.

I'm a Lord.....get me out of here.


Through the mists of time
Along the paths the angels tread
My mind has raced a million miles ahead
I thought I lived - but know I'm dead
Aahh!! Death is a very ................ Zen experience.

The COTE de NUITS famous commune names are Fixin, Moray Saint-Denis, Vosne-Romanee, La Tache and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
