"Deep Well, Deep Root" by Ko Hyeong-ryeol


Deep Well, Deep Root

Trees that reach

the deep well do not sway.

They are not blinded by resistance or justice.

They only restrain the overflowing water

and drink it exclusively; they act like a hermit on the earth

and shoot forth many leaves as a model hermit.
