죽는 날까지 하늘을 우러러

한 점 뿌끄럼이 없기를

잎새에 이는 바람에도

나는 괴로워핬다

별을 노래하는 마음으로

모든 죽어 가는 것을 사랑해야지

그리고 나한테 주어진 길을


오늘 밤에도 별이 바람에 스치운다.

Yoon Dong-joo

Until the day of my death I will look to the heavens without shame.

As the leaf blowing in the wind I too suffer.

As clearly as the singing stars I know

I must love all things traveling towards death

and I too must walk the road I’ve been given.

For tonight also the stars will slide past the breeze.
