Korean Poem "Prelude" by Yun Dong-ju


Yun Dong-ju (1917-1945)

Let me have no shame

Under the heaven

Till I die.

Even winds among the foliage

Pained my heart.

With a heart that sings of the stars,

I'll love all dying things.

And I must fare the path

That's been allotted to me.

Tonight also

The winds sweep over the stars

※ Yun Dong-ju, he is a poet who protested against the Japanese occupation through literary works.
