《元.明–禪詩》江紹倫英譯

《無題》佛鑑慧懃(元1320-1376)《No Title》Fu Jian

堂堂氣宇走雷霆  Head held high his charisma commands thundering
凜凜威風掬霜雪  His solemn air heralds frost and snow winds blowing
將軍下令斬荊蠻  The general orders the execution of men evil

《宋禪詩》江紹倫英譯

《萬丈》白雲守端  (1025-1072)
《Ten Thousand Feet》Bai Yun Souduan

和竿一掣隨鉤上  With a swing of rod the fisherman catches a fish ending its life
水面茫茫散月明  The water calm when moonlight dances sending ripples wide Continue reading
