Zen Poem 
by Ikkyū (1394-1481)

Rain and hail, snow and ice
Are divided from one another;
But after they fall,
They are the same water
Of the stream in the valley.

AUTUMN 
by Taigu Ryōkan (1758-1831)

My beloved friend
You and I had a sweet talk,
Long ago, one autumn night.
Renewing itself
The year has rumbled along,
That night still in memory.

Rain and hail, snow and ice

Are divided from one another;

But after they fall,

They are the same water

Of the stream in the valley.
