Some fields hidden!

A certain Mr. Stasse (featured several times on this website) has temporarily withdrawn from society to live at a Buddhist retreat.

Original Title: 《老傻赐新隐士》

2020-10-13: On reflection, I dislike the third line and will probably change it. It's a leftover from the first draft, and out of place.


Rough translation (updated 2020-10-13):

Autumn wind shakes the trees, but the fruits don't go along
I wish the hermit was here to appreciate it, too
Life's twists and turns aren't worth guessing at
He is steady, like the fruits, and that's worth imitating
