To the one, who taught me how to read the poem

Recommended Posts

To the one, who taught me how to read the poem. I will start now. Listen, please.


Since I understood the unborn

I have had no reason for joy or sorrow

When honoured or disgraced.

I have entered the silence and beauty of the mountains;

In a deep valley beneath high cliffs

I sit beneath the tall pines.

Meditating in my rustic cottage

I have peace, solitude and true comfort. Yoka Daishi
