China Group 2: Buddhist Statues & a Poem

Left behind Relics of a time long ago 

Left to watch the Yi River flow

Set in stone and preserved through time

These Buddhist statues carved from lime


Resting Between the peaks of Xiang and Longmen

A peaceful setting that inspires inner zen


With hundreds of people passing me by

All cherishing these relics as they slowly erode and die.


(*note*The formatting is off, and each line should end with the rhyming one. Ex: ago & flow. Thanks. By the way, this is about the Luòyáng grottos)
