This poetry is like the poet humble in its simplicity, rich in philosophy; a strange mixture of Buddhism and Christianity. Teague’s sensitive translations make this a pleasure to read. Time after time, the theme of the river returns as the best focus for thoughts about continuity and renewal, sin and redemption, past and future, time and eternity.
