What did I find in the ancient forest?
The mountain road was a lonely drive.
The path was grown up with brush.
The fluttering canopy was beautiful.
In the clearing I saw a fox.
Once the scattering birds had left,
I was alone in a world from past ages.
My way home was illuminated
by the golden sun in the west.
My day had been happy and I smiled.
