Yuan Mei - Mad Words

To learn to be without desire
          you must desire that.
Better to do as you please:
          sing idleness.
Foating clouds, and water idly running --
          Where's their source?
In all the vastness of the sea and sky,
you'll never find it.


-- from A Drifting Boat: Chinese Zen Poetry, Edited by J. P. Seaton / Edited by Dennis Maloney
