(about Chang P’ing-tze / “the Immortals”)
My nature is bound with the Great Spirit and I am like a wave
in the changing stream of dark and light.
The Creator of all creatures is my father and mother
my bed in heaven, my cushion the earth
thunder and lightning are the drums and fan
sun and the moon are like a torch and candle
the “Milky – Way” my protection-wall, the crowd of stars
my precious jewellery
My character is one with nature
Strange to me, my own desires and passions
I do not arrive but I am still here
I never hurry but I am still fast.
