bell enters this fastness
where blue mist rises
from bamboo groves;
down from a high peak
hangs a waterfall;

A dog's bark mingles with splashing water; Peach blossoms fatten on spring rain. Here and there, in deep woods, I spot deer; A loud-flowing stream drowns out noon's bell. Blades of bamboo slice blue mist; From a jade peak erupts a cascading spring. At the retreat no one knows where master has gone; Dejected, I lean against this and that pine, and wait. (trans., S.H.)
