Wealth

no accumulation endures — if you believe

that mountains live forever, think again

look beneath your feet! each time

you cross a stream you receive a silver coin

the coin of the only realm that matters—

 

let this be your treasury — you can never

spend it, not in the time it will take

for these mountains to wash down to the sea.

true wealth is standing barefoot in a cold river

with no need to count anything
