Zen Poem by Master Seung Sahn

Poetry can be a way to teach.  Here is one poem from Bone of Space: Zen Poems by Master Seung Sahn.

Autumn leaves fall in the cold wind.
Is there right or wrong in this?

Here is a scripture not made of paper
And there are no words in it

Yet it’s pages constantly emit light
Brightening the darkness

And each thing becomes clear as it is:
Mountain is mountain, river is river;

Red comes, red;
White comes, white.
