Learn Chinese in China


Help in locating Chinese Poem

Recommended Posts



Recently I heard two-lines of a Chinese poem or perhaps a proverb on CCTV (CGTV) that was translated to English as follows:   " whenever the sun goes up several monoliths on a mountain peak will turn into a glittering rooster  "    


Please can someone help me identify this poem or proverb and possibly its author ?


Many Thanks,


Mark 🙂

I think it's an excerpt from the essay 黄山奇石 that Chinese second-year pupils will study. Its Chinese text is 每当太阳升起,有座山峰上的几块巨石,就变成了一只金光闪闪的雄鸡。But the textbook doesn't tell us its author.
