Spring-Watching Pavilion

A gentle spring evening arrives
airily, unclouded by worldly dust.

Three times the bell tolls echoes like a wave.
We see heaven upside-down in sad puddles.

Love’s vast sea cannot be emptied.                       
And springs of grace flow easily everywhere.
Where is nirvana? Nirvana is here, nine times out of ten.
