(Cold Mountain)
(730? - 850?)

English version by
Red Pine

Original Language

Buddhist : Zen / Chan
8th Century

Someone lives in a mountain gorge
cloud robe and sunset tassels
holding sweet plants he would share
but the road is long and hard
burdened by regrets and doubts
old and unaccomplished
called by others crippled
he stands alone steadfast
