[Translation | Poem] The poem that inspired Navillera

2 posts in this topic

Title: Monk Dance. (승무)

Poet: Jo Ji Hoon. (조지훈)
 

With thin, white clothing,

Carefully fold, like a butterfly.

 

Hiding the bald, shaven head

beneath the cone hat.

 

The light that flows through the two cheeks

is unfortunately sweet.

 

On a silent night, on an empty candlelit stage,

the leaves fall and the moon rises.

 

The sleeves are long, the sky is wide,

it turns and flies gracefully!

 

Through the black pupils, there exists a star.

On the peach colored cheeks, are two tear marks.

Though torturous, the troubles are starlight.

 

The hand bends and twists and reaches,

but internally, it comes together.

 

Even through the third sleepless night,

With thin white clothing,

 

Carefully fold, like a butterfly.

So beautiful, like a stream of rain water, our transparent story...

Whoa, that's a beautiful poem!

I imagine capturing the correct translations and mood were challenging. It flowed perfectly. Awesome job! :)

Thank you, @천사보컬.
