Music From Riverside     Zen


Zen poetry is characterized by simple and short sentiments.
And usually very peaceful.

Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself"

In the Scenery of Spring for SATB and Piano
    "In the scenery of Spring
     nothing is better, nothing worse.
     The flowering branches are of themselves,
     some short, some long.
     Nothing is better, nothing worse.
