Poem 1

The TAO that can be spoken of is not the TAO itself.

A description of TAO would require a duplication of the TAO.   

The unnameable is the source of the universe.

The nameable is the originator of all things.

Its wonder and its manifestations are one and the same.

Since their emergence, they have been called by different names.

Their identity is called the mystery.

From mystery to further mystery:

It is the gateway to all mysteries.
