A scholar named Wang

A scholar named Wang,

laughed at my poems.

“The accents are wrong.” He said,

“Too many beats,

the meter is poor,

the wording impulsive.”

I laugh at his poems,

As he laughs at mine.

They read like:

the words of a blind man,

describing the sun.

~ Hoff (from Tao of Pooh)
