“Rain,

Yoshikawa observes, is a frequent Sung reference- rain to listen to at night while talking to a bedmate, rain to burn incense and study by.

 

          Shall I tell you the way to become a god

                  in this humdrum world?

          Burn some incense and sit listening to the rain.

                                                                                                  Lu Yu”
