from My Thatch Hut NewlyBuilt Below Incense Burner Peak. I Chant My thoughts Then Copy Them Onto the Rocks by Po Chü-i

I admire how easily contentment comes
just sitting here in the midst of all this,

and marveling at the song of heaven.
I blend in a few tipsy words and let it

voice my nature: a far-country recluse
caught in nets of human consequence.
