Hills Surround Me

The hills surround me, and
Tell me to live my life,
Sowing the seeds,
Tilling the land.

Build a house below a hill,
Bear sons, bear daughters;
Plant pumpkins along the mud walls.
Live like wild roses
Live like wormwood.

The hills surround me, and
Tell me to live like clouds,
Tell me to live like winds,
Life will soon wane like the moon!
