山出雲時雲出山,
化為霖雨遍人寰。
端知帝所旌幢會,
不在金堂玉室間。
倣高尚書。

When mountains put forth clouds, clouds put forth mountains,
Transformed into continuous rain, they encompass all mankind;
From this one knows that the gods’ assembled banners and pennants
Are not in golden halls or rooms of jade.
After Minister Gao [Kegong, 1248–1310]
