A small boat

Drift a small boat with two paddles
In the sky above 
Swiftly passes by the lake surface 
A frightened swan 

Clear blue sky painted with 
The green mountains
All the beautiful scene is 
Taken by the still water

Waveless lake shapes like a mirror  
With countable fish swimming 
In clear water

On the sandbank by the river 
White birds take a leisurely perch thereon 
Look like you 
Look like me
