sitting quietly, doing nothing spring comes, grass grows by itself
ancient pond frog jumping in splash
a strange flower for birds and butterflies the autumn sky
A thousand peaks covered with frozen snow Ten thousand mountain paths, yet no sign of human beings Everyday, only zazen Sometimes the sound of snow blowing against the window
- Ryokan (translated by John Stevens)
