Verses to the Ten Oxherding Pictures

Verse 1.

Still Unherded
Fearsome his horns, unrestrained he snorts,
He charges off through the brooks and mountains, the path wending its way into the distance,
A dark cloud lies across the mouth of the valley,
Who knows whether his hooves are trampling on delicate sprouts?
