Anyone has a translation for始得西山宴游記》by Liu Zongyuan 柳宗元?

 

自余為僇人,居是州恒惴慄.  

其隟也,則施施而行漫漫而游.  

日與其徒上高山,入深林窮迴谿幽泉怪石,無遠不到

到則披草而坐,傾壺而醉

醉則更相枕以臥,臥而夢

意有所極,夢亦同趣覺而起起而歸.  

以為凡是州之山水有異態者皆我有也而未始知西山之怪特

今年九月二十八日因坐法華西亭望西山始指異之

攀援而登箕踞而遨則凡數州之土壤皆在袵席之下

其高下之勢岈然洼然若垤若穴尺寸千里攢蹙累積莫得遯隱

縈青繚白外與天際四望如一.

然後知是山之特立不與培塿為類悠悠乎與顥氣俱,而莫得其涯

洋洋乎與造物者遊,而不知其所窮

引觴滿酌頹然就醉不知日之入.

蒼然暮色,自遠而至至無所見而猶不欲歸.

心凝形釋與萬化冥合然後知吾嚮之未始游 ,游於是乎始 ,故為之文以志。

是歲,元和 四年也.
