Remembrance - Poem by Su Tung-po

To what can our life on earth be likened?
To a flock of geese,
alighting on the snow.
Sometimes leaving a trace of their passage.

    Remembrance

    To what can our life on earth be likened?
    To a flock of geese,
    alighting on the snow.
    Sometimes leaving a trace of their passage

    - IN ITALIAN:

    Memoria

    A cosa può somigliare la nostra vita terrena?
    Ad uno stormo d'oche
    che si posano sulla neve.
    Lasciando talvolta qualche traccia del loro passaggio. (Report) Reply
