Wang Wei (699-759)
Where is the Temple of Teeming Fragrance?
Miles and miles into cloud-peaks.
Ancient trees; there's no path.
Deep in the mountinas: where, that bell?
Fountains sob, swallowing perilous rocks.
Sun colors green pines.
Dusk. At an empty pool's bend,
Meditation exorcises heart's virulent dragon.
