Lovely Kenzan Plate

I recently found a translation of the poem on this square dish by Kenzan. It was decorated with the heron by his brother Korin. I thought I would share it with you.

“Raising its head, it does not aspire to pierce the heavens with its shrill cry,

but only to startle people into enlightenment.”
