Meng Shu Ch'ing
Chinese, Ming Dynasty, 1368 - 1643
On the low wall of my garden
There stands a tiny shrine,
In the shadow of the trees.
When I am weary of this sad world,
And of man's turmoil and strife,
I steal off
To my shrine among the trees.
There, with silent prayer and incense,
I find my soul again -
And thank Heaven
For my shrine among the trees.
