Listen to poem:

A man of ancient skills and tradition,
          Lived in a land of structured discipline,
A balanced life with moral conviction,
          Daily vigilance maintains his routine,
          Rain wet Cherry Blossom tree now glisten.

          Rakes of stones crafts a serene rock garden,
          Sounds of snips of a Bonsai Tree are done,
Grunts and shorten words as a sword swooshes,
          A Suzume bird now tweets when hearten
Saimin ate and Haiku read, finishes.
