Pine Tree: A Song From the Heart


All day long I sit beneath the pine,

Or stroll around the pond.

Whether I walk or stand, sit or lie down;

My mind is calm, uncalculating,

Unaware of time passing by,

Just letting my white hair grow.

Were it not that the world cares naught for me,

How could I enjoy this leisure time!

A Song From the Heart
Bai Juyi (772-864)
