Ikkyu (1394-1481) "A Fisherman" (poem) 

A Fisherman

By Ikkyu (Ikkyu Sojun)
(1394 - 1481)

English version by John Stevens

Studying texts and stiff meditation can make you lose your Original Mind.
A solitary tune by a fisherman, though, can be an invaluable treasure.
Dusk rain on the river, the moon peeking in and out of the clouds;
Elegant beyond words, he chants his songs night after night.
