In the World

Oxherding Picture by Gyokusei Jikihara

 

Barefooted and naked of breast,
I mingle with the people
of the world.
My clothes are ragged and dust-laden,
and I am ever blissful.
I use no magic to extend my life;
Now, before me, the dead trees
become alive.

I have abandoned the whip and ropes
