You can see the moon’s brightness,
Illuminating all under heaven.
Its round radiance suspended in the Great Void,
Is lustrous, pure and ethereal.
Others say it waxes and wanes;
That which I see is eternal, never declining.
With an aura like the Mani pearl,
Its brilliance knows no day or night.

Shide (8th c)
