There Is No Resting

We present this work in honor of the 675th anniversary of the poet’s death.

Sesson Yūbai
Japanese
1290 – 1348

 

Who travels the Way heeds the Heart’s and the Way’s beginnings,
But the Way’s everywhere, without boundaries —
I’ll go till the rivers run dry, exhaust the peaks:
In the calm of the clouds I’ll sit, and watch the moon light up the heavens.
