Ryōkan Taigu – Down In The Village

Down In The Village

Down in the village
the din of
flute and drum,
here deep in the mountain
everywhere the sound of the pines.

-Taigu Ryokan

From Wikipedia:

He loved children, and sometimes forgot to beg for food because he was playing with the children of the nearby village.
