[China] Dazang Love Is the World’s Land and Water (Translated by Sophy Chen)
Love Is the World’s Land and Water
From the deep cave, you traced back to the aroma of rotted leaves
You keep the deadwood’s promises, and don’t fall into desolation
You believe the river drying up, but its heart going back to the sea
Nectar from the highest reward of flowers’ love
You witnessed butterflies lighting up wings to light the sky
You witnessed your vicissitudes, magnificence and brightness
When your heart is soft, from the wilderness a grass will go to solemnity and quietness
A ray of moonlight will make the sky very distant
Well, you will pass through the fish’s eyes shining with panic
And swim across the river with its plants waning
You believe the river running wildly and its heart going back to the sea
Love is the world’s land and water even up it’s been dried
When you’ve reaped big, we have to appreciate all things
