See the moon’s bright blaze of light,
A shining lamp, above the world
Full glistening and hanging in vast void.
That brilliant jewel,
Its brightness, through the mist.
Some people say it waxes, wanes
Their’s may, but mine remains
As steady as the Mani Pearl
This light knows neither day or night.

Shih Te (730)
