This anthology gathers over 1500 years if chinese language Zen (Ch'an) poetry, from the earliest writing -- together with the Hsin Hsin Ming written by way of the 3rd Patriarch -- to the poetry of clergymen dwelling during this century. Drawn jointly by means of the Zen thread, this ragged line of poet-hermits types a profound lineage for plenty of modern poets.

Sample text

In evening ligh t Restaurant flag s Crown buildings and terraces . Thickly drifting , Mingled scents Perfume the cliffs . In wet flight Two kingfisher s Brush the ripples . A good thin g People weave Grass hats and raincoats , Board boats , Become fishermen . A Recluse on Orphan Mountai n (Written on a Wall) Until deep into mountain and rive r The gibbons and birds are few . This lifetime I still might move : Above the creek past India Village . Log for a bridge , I'll build a little hut . PH Chih Yuan (fl late 10th century ) I'll ride my inspiration , Make a casual visit .

I heard wind and waterfall in a dream : I have nothin g else to send you . The wheel outside the door is just the moon . Those objects hanging from the eaves , just Autumn clouds . People may talk about a ladder to heaven . Ten million rungs, and each an illusion . . Better the old ma n sitting, on the cliff Breeze clear, moon bright , and his heart , the same . II . Cloud Mountain ' s to p and the white clouds, level. Climb to the top and then you'll know just how low the world is . Strange herbs, rar e blossoms people wouldn't recognize , and a spring that runs dow n in nine separate streams.

JPS Letter to the Wild Mon k Other than the birds , who loves you ? Lordly peaks, you r neighbors. White head cold pillowe d on a stone . Grey robe ragge d but not soiled . Chestnuts pile up on your path . Monkeys circle where you sit . If you ever set up another Zendo , I swear 1'11 be the one who sweeps the floors . Moored on Fall Rive r To an Old Monk on Mount T'ien T'a i Banks like Lake Tung-t'ing, bu t the hills too steep . Living alone where none other dwells , shrine among the pines where mountain tints encroach , old man's been ninety years a monk : heart beyond the clouds a lifetime long .
