Resolution

This clear bright pond
Ruffled in the wind;

Pines that nod from their crags in greeting;

Scattered clouds that cloak the summits in shadows;

The half-risen moon which lights the vales,

When from tree to tree dart crying birds:

To these will I abandon, will I entrust my life.
Isonokami no Yakatsugu (729-781) (tr. Burton Watson)
