Each day the gold sun comes over the hill.
The woods are beautiful, also the dark animals,
Also man; hunter or farmer.
The fish rises with a red body in the green pond.
Under the arch of heaven
The fisherman travels smoothly in his blue skiff.
The grain, the cluster of grapes, ripen slowly.
When the still day comes to an end,
Both evil and good have been prepared.
When the night has come,
Easily the pilgrim lifts his heavy eyelids;
The sun breaks from gloomy ravines.
translated by Robert Bly
