Come on! Make incense yourself and feel Chinese culture

Viewing the Waterfall at Mount Lu

Li Bai

 

Sunlight streaming on Incense Stone kindles a violet smoke,

Far off I watch the waterfall plunge to the long river;

Flying waters descending straight three thousand feet,

Till I think the Milky Way has tumbled from the ninth height of Heaven.

望廬山瀑布

李白

 

日照香爐生紫煙,

遙看瀑布掛前川。

飛流直下三千尺,

疑是銀河落九天。
