Bamboo and Plum Blossom: Liu Changqing (709-785)

Liu Changqing (709-785)

While Visiting on the South Stream the Taoist Priest Chang
Walking along a little path,
I find a footprint on the moss,
A white cloud low on the quiet lake,
Grasses that sweeten an idle door,
A pine grown greener with the rain,
A brook that comes from a mountain source –
And, mingling with Truth among the flowers,
I have forgotten what to say.
