The Joy of Fishes....

Chuang Tzu and Hui Tzu
Were crossing Hao River
By the dam.

Chuang said:
"See how free
The fishes leap and dart:
That is their happiness."

Hui replied:
"Since you are not a fish
How do you know
What makes fishes happy?"

Chuang said:
"I know the joy of fishes
In the river
Through my own joy, as I go walking
Along the same river."

(from The Way of Chuang Tzu)
