A very famous Mid-Tang poet, maybe the only one from Beijing, featured with his extreme efforts on wording, yet with a relatively limited vision and magnanimity.

Jia Dao is also famous in many stories, one story about him was told at the end of this video: Push or Knock(推敲), a story about this poem.

题李凝幽居
贾岛

闲居少邻并,
草径入荒园。
鸟宿池边树,
僧敲月下门。

过桥分野色,
移石动云根。
暂去还来此,
幽期不负言。
