Magnificent Peak

- Muso Soseki

By its own nature
     it towers above
          the tangle of rivers
Don't say
     it's a lot of dirt
          piled high
Without end the mist of dawn
     the evening cloud
          draw their shadows across it
From the four directions
     you can look up and see it
          green and steep and wild.
