Tag: Yun-k’an Tzu

done with the world

Poet: Yun-k'an Tzu

done with the world
and pure
          as darkness
nothing to hold me
nothing restrain
the old guy here
within the grove
before blue cliffs the
                    moon’s companion
mad and singing
drunk and dancing
smashed,

no tricks

Poet: Yun-k'an Tzu

no tricks
          nothing doing.
the sun and moon endure their rush
and don’t grow old.
sail backwards?

who envies you

Poet: Yun-k'an Tzu

who envies you
oh high and mighty
all done up in purple
and dangling your badge of rank
my heart’s at peace
I’m satisfied with me
there aren’t many in the world today
to match this
               crafty rascal.
