MOTION, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Like a water-wheel awhirl
Last Line: Behold the key that fits my theme.
Alternate Author Name(s): Piao-sheng

Like a water-wheel awhirl,
Like the rolling of a pearl;
Yet these but illustrate,
To fools, the final state.
The earth's great axis spinning on,
The never-resting pole of sky --
Let us resolve their Whence and Why,
And blend with all things into One;
Beyond the bounds of thought and dream,
Circling the vasty void as spheres
Whose orbits round a thousand years:
Behold the Key that fits my theme.
