A Lifetime of Books

A poem by Yi Hwang (1501–1570), aka T'oegye, tr. Richard Rutt, The Bamboo Grove: An Introduction to Sijo (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1971), no. 177:
Back at the High Cloud Terrace
               my study is cool and quiet.
A lifetime of books
               has meant delights without end.
What words can I find to describe
               these pleasures ever fresh?
