Eine Schöne von schlanker Gestalt
ging im Wald spazieren,
sich dann und wann ausruhend.
Indes sie mit der Hand 
die drei goldenen Schleier löst,
die ihren Busen verhüllen,
schickt sie dem Mond
die Strahlen zurück, von denen sie überglänzt war.

Eine Tanne steht einsam auf einem Berg
im dorren Norden. Sie schläft.
Eis und Schnee umhüllen sie 
mit einem weißen Mantel.

Sie träumt von einer Palme, die dort unten
im fernen Orient traurig steht,
allein und schweigend
am brennend heißen Felsenhang.

Zu jener Zeit wurde
das Kommen des Buddha auf Erden angekündigt.
Es erhob sich am Himmel ein gewaltiges Brausen.
Die Götter schwenkten ihre Fächer, bewegten ihr Gewand
und streuten herrliche Blüten aus in großer Zahl.
Geheimnisvolle, süße Düfte verschlangen sich
wie Lianen im lauen Hauch dieser Frühlingsnacht.
Die göttliche Perle des Vollmonds 
verharrte über dem marmornen Palast,
bewacht von zwanzigtausend Elefanten,
dem Grau der Wolkenberge gleich.

Wenn du an sie denkst,
empfindest du quälenden Schmerz.
Wenn du sie siehst,
ist dein Gemüt verwirrt.
Wenn du sie berührst,
verlierst du den Verstand.
Wie kann man sie Geliebte nennen?
