1月の詩

 横田南嶺老師揮毫。坂村真民さんの詩です。

円覚寺山内・黄梅院の山門下にある掲示板にて、実物はご覧になれます。

Since I was born in winter,

I like not evergreens but deciduous trees

that shed all of their leaves,

standing out against the winter sky.

To encounter those trees bare of leaves

moves me more profoundly than

the founders of a religious sect.
