In The Wilderness I Am Completely Free


As for me, I delight in the everyday Way, 
Among mist-wrapped vines and rocky caves. 
Here in the wilderness I am completely free, 
With my friends, the white clouds, idling forever. 
There are roads, but they do not lead to the world; 
Since I am mindless, who can rouse my thoughts ? 
On a bed of stones I sit, alone in the night, 
While the moon climbs up Cold Mountain. 

- Han San, 9th century
