The Japanese’s garden water rondeau

by Alexandru Macedonski

To his water in the garden
Much too slowly flowing down
Rocks and boulders in a cluster
Japanese lays in its line.

He would like to see it foamy
All around his house enclosing
Quiet water in the garden
Much too slowly flowing down.

Changing it to falling rapids
Of consonants and of vowels
He forgets life’s heavy burden
By the crystals all resounding
Of his water in the garden.
