li nan

                    translated by Huichun (Amy) Liang and Steven Schroeder

In the wide world, I think to myself
All beings are one.
Birds and beasts, forests, still wilderness
Want to breathe, want to change inside quietly quietly……
Silent star, sorrowing stone
Want to speak, want to weep
Still want to scatter frost on empty wind.
