Seeking reward only in a little dew or rain.

Though the house is bare and the market, far off.

In this open-air market bound by hills.

Just like love. Only poetry lasts.

And the path into the cleft is dark.

Placing incense sticks on smoking altars.

Everything can rest on just one little thing.

Jostling about by the temple door,
They'd like to be scholars but they can't even talk.

Finding great peace again and again
He claps out rhythms, shouts out joy.

Rushing around all helter-skelter.
