New edition. More elegant poetry from the renowned Zen monk and hermit. Many of his poems record his daily activities: trips to the nearby villages to beg for rice, playing with the children, snow-bound winters, gathering firewood and plants, and meditation.

"Ryokan's poetry is both muscular and mysteriously empty of self, like the tracks of a bounding deer left in the snow. Yet the clarity and lightness of his Zen mind are fulfilled by the warmth of his Zen gaze and heart. Whether in poems dsecribing ball games with village children or in an extended correspondence with a Buddhist nun forty years his junior, Ryokan's writings, beautifully presented in this collection, offer a direct, intimate, and renovating conversation with the deep landscape of human life." Jane Hirshfield.
