"Wind Last Night Blew Down"

Random Poetry List XLII

Wind last night blew down
A gardenful of peach blossoms.
A boy with a broom
is starting to sweep them up.

Fallen flowers are flowers still;
Don't brush them away.

Anonymous (Korean, 16th century AD)
tr. Virginia Olsen Baron and Chung Seuk Park
