QUOTES

Quote #25 of 365

Hermitage at Broken-Hill Monastery

Within this coven old

By the clear dawn

Tall woods are lit with earliest rays.

Lo here and there a pathway  strays

On to a hidden lawn.

The light upon yon hill

Lulls every bird;

And shadow on dark tarns set free

The soul of men from vanity.

Each sound of earth is still.

Only the temple bell is heard

Ch’ang Chien (1899-1983), China
