Tiger Creek Laughter
        Sengai Gibbon 1750-1837

Why do we laugh
        on the stone bridge
Clouds can't be trapped
Vanish unshackeled 
        over stone bridge
                before Donglin Temple. 
Hǔxī Xiào
Translator: Dongbo 東波

There is a wonderful Zen (Chan) story about the laughter at Tiger Creek, in front of the East Forest Temple at the foot of Lushan, Jiangxi Province in China.
