Shallow-Grass Temple

I came to the Shallow-Grass Temple in winter White eaves flying across a hall, prayer flags with Chinese characters The golden Tang Dynasty hung on a ginkgo tree outside I stood in front of the Tang Dynasty building As if my ancestors standing in front of their house Undead, revived before my eyes I stretched out my modern arms To touch the wooded wall I saw the piety and discipline of our ancestors I saw their wild hair, crying with songs But my palm exuded its cold dew in winter Broken Chinese characters jumping off prayer banners I saw the affable Buddha behind the memorial tablet But so obscured in kimono I walked through the Shallow-Grass Temple in winter I came to the Shallow-Grass Temple, passing through the gate But not entering.
