Retreat to the Mountains

September 2, 2017
Sonnenhof: A retreat to the mountains

 

A thousand clouds, ten thousand streams,

Here I live, an idle man,

Roaming green peaks by day,

Back to sleep by cliffs at night.

One by one, springs and autumns go,

Free of heat and dust, my mind.

Sweet to know there’s nothing I need,

Silent as the autumn river’s flood.

Hanshan (literally: “Cold Mountain”)
