Impermanence (poem by Dogen) 


by Dogen
(1200 - 1253)

English version by Steven Heine

To what shall
I liken the world?
Moonlight, reflected
In dewdrops,
Shaken from a crane’s bill.

-- from "The Zen Poetry of Dogen: Verses from the Mountain of Eternal Peace," by Steven Heine

(Found this poem on Ivan Granger's Poetry Chaikhana site--see link on sidebar).
