haigaTK012a tobutorimo PH1000a chinese mountains in switzerland -1912

tobu tori mo kayowanu yama no oku ni sae
sumeba sumaruru mononizo arikeru
inmidst the mountains where even winged birds rarely nestle
how have I lived on since I came here
Poem by Ryokan, Japanese zen monk, poet, and calligrapher, 1758 - 1830
