Poems wishing to songs - by Nyo Chung

1. Meditation

                                                                                                     By Nyo Chung

  Meditation is 

          To lessen the pride
                      But straighten the waist. 


      To close the eyes

         But open the mind.


               To swallow the words

            But present a smile.


                         To send away idle thoughts

                                   But welcome others with a hug. 


  

명상

                                                                                               시인   정


명상은
 

                 키를 낮추고 허리 세우기

            두 눈은 감고 마음 열기
 

            말은 삼키고 미소 짓기
 

            생각은 접고 포옹하기.


  

2. How to live young and healthy

                                                                                                                    By  Nyo Chung
 

To live young,
compare your age with your senior.
 

To live wealthy,
Compare your money with homeless

  


  

젊게 부자로 사는

                                                                                                                                 시인    

젊게 사는 법,
나이는 선배와 비교한다.
 

부자로 사는법,
금전은 거지와 비교한다.


  

3. Yearning 

                                                                                           By  Nyo Chung

Isn’t it strange?

When I drink coffee, I think of you

Fragrant like the scent of coffee

The only one I want to see.


Isn’t it strange?

When I look at the full moon, I think of you

Lovely like the light of the moon

The only one I want to hold hands with.


Isn’t it strange?

When it snows, I think of you

The only one I want to make a snowball for

The only one I want to laugh out loud with. 


  

그리움 

                                                                                      시인  

이상하지

커피를 마시면 네 생각이 나

커피향기 같은 사람

마주하고 싶은 사람


이상하지

둥근 달을 보면 네 생각이 나

달빛같이 정겨운 사람

손을 잡고 싶은 사람


이상하지

눈이 나리면 네 생각이 나

흰 눈 뭉쳐 건네고 싶은 사람

눈 속에서 크게 웃고 싶은 사람.



  

4.    I never realized

                                                                                                            By  Nyo Chung

                While watching to forecast every morning

                I never watched the moon and stars rise.


                              While noticing every new sign board on the street

                              I never realized the changing leaves on the tree.


                   While writing a memo of finance very night

I never write your warm heart.


     Because I was looking straight ahead

                 I never knew you were always beside me.


  

차마 몰랐습니다.

                                                   시인  


   매일 아침 일기예보는 보면서            

    달과 별이 뜨는 것을 보지 못했습니다.


새로 생긴 간판은 알아 차리며         

가로수 잎새 변하는 걸 몰랐습니다.


     매일 저녁 가계부는 쓰면서                   

당신의 마음은 쓰지 못했습니다.    


 앞만 보고 걸었기에                             

     옆에서 걸어준 당신을 차마 몰랐습니다.




  5.  Our lives 

                                                                                                       By Nyo Chung

Our lives pick up         
both Sorrows and joys

   wth a pair of chopsticks.


  

우리의 삶은

                                                                                           시인      정

우리의 삶은 

고통과 기쁨을 나란히 먹는

쌍의 젓가락질.
