The Valley Wind 

Living in retirement beyond the world
Silently enjoying isolation
I pull the rope of my door tighter
And stuff my window with roots and ferns.

My spirit is tuned to the spring season
At the fall of the year there is autumn in my heart
Thus imitating cosmic changes
My cottage becomes a universe.
