一日, 正当嗟悼之际,俄见一僧一道远远而来,生得骨格不凡,丰神迥异,说说笑 笑来至峰下, 坐于石边高谈快论.
The whining stone keeps us busy...
One day, the stone was just lamenting, he suddenly saw a Buddist monk and a Daoist monk coming from the distance. Their body looked astonishing, godlike and far from the ordinary, they spoke laughing until they reached that point under the summit, where they sat by the side of the stone. And they discussed loudly and fast.
One day, just when (正当) lamenting (嗟悼)
Suddenly [he] saw a (Buddhist) monk and a Daoist monk (一道) coming along from the distance (远远而来)
“Their skeleton grew” (生得骨格) -> They looked like (today one would probably say 长得) out of the ordinary (不凡)
Very godlike (丰神) and far from the ordinary (迥异)
Spoke laughing until [they] reached that point under the summit (至峰下)
They sat by the side of the stone (坐于石边)
And discussed loudly and fast (高谈快论)
