“Bamboo Song”

Listen to the bamboo’s song
It is born of rocky ground, cruel earth
From its birth the bamboo is called to flourish
Even from a cliff the bamboo roots itself tight
The bamboo turns its head to the sun
Upward to the sky it grows straight, oriental elegance
The wind cannot sway the bamboo from its destiny
Happy the man who lives the bamboo song.
