The Fruit Pedlar - Poem by Kong Yin

Neatly piled on the stand of the fruit pedlar
three kinds of fruit
shining and appetizing:
Love, Wisdom, and Joy.

'How much is a pound of Love? '
I cannot help but ask.

'More or less equal to a pound of Wisdom.'

'Then how much is a pound of Wisdom? '

'More or less equal to a pound of Joy.'

'Then how much is a pound of Joy? '

The fruit pedlar chuckles
'When you buy a Love fruit and
a Wisdom fruit
you get Joy for free.'
