Xuan Zang
        Gary Snyder  1930-

Xuan Zang
went to India 629 AD
returned to China 645
with 657 sutras,
images, mandalas,
and fifty relics--
a curved frame pack with a parasol,
embroidery, carving,
incense censor swinging as he walked.
 
Xuán Zàng
Jìyuán liù èr jiù nián Yìndù
Liù wǔ sì huídào Zhōngguǒ
Xiédài liùbái wǔshí zhǒng jīng,
Fóxiàng, màn chá luó,
Jí wǔshí zhǒng shèng wù --
Bèi yī gè jiàzi wānqū de bēibāo,
fùyǒu yī bǎ sǎn,
Yǒu cìxiù, diāokè,
Tā xíng bù de shíhòu,
xiānglù zài bǎi zhòng dòng.
