Translation

Poem 28: Stella


風窓燈易滅이요
By the windblown window, the lamp is easily extinguished

月屋夢難成이라.
In the moonlit room, dreams are hardly completed.

日暮鷄登塒요
At dusk, the chicken climbs into the roost

天寒鳥入簷이라.
In winter’s cold, the bird enters the eaves.


  • Discussion Questions:

(YO) I might point out that the first two characters in each line may also be taken as sentences (S+P): "The wind blows on the window"; "The moon lights on (or into) the room"; "The day turns into dusk"; "The sky is cold".

Poem 30: Stella


細雨池中看이요
Thin drizzle is seen on the middle of the pond

微風木末知라.
Slight breeze is known from the tips of the trees.

花笑聲未聽이요
Flowers smile but their laughter cannot be heard

鳥啼淚難看이라.
Birds cry but their tears are hardly seen.


  • Discussion Questions:

(YO) Sine you translated the last line, "Birds cry but their tears are hardly seen," wouldn't it be consistent to take the third line, "Flowers laugh but the sound is not heard"?

Poem 32: Mo Ran Seo


A bird sleeps in the pond-side trees,
a monk knocks on the door under the moon.
An oar pierces the moon under the wave,
a boat presses the sky in the water.

  • Discussion Questions:

(YO) As discussed, both of these two couplets are associated with Jia Dao 賈島, a well-known poet of Tang. (I introduced the story behind the first couplet in the introduction to this volume, Ch'ugu, in our syllabus.) The second couplet appears in the Shilin guangji 詩林廣記 compiled by Cai Zhengsun 蔡正孫 (1239-?): When a Gaoli 高麗 (Koryŏ, but in fact referring to Silla) envoy initiated a first couplet with "沙鳥浮還沒,山雲斷復連" [Sea birds are afloat and then gone; Mountain clouds cut off and again continue], Jia Dao replied with this couplet. (Shilin guangji, Siku quanshu edition, 7: 7b. Yi Sugwang's 李睟光 Chibong yusŏl 芝峯類說 also records it in its "Munjang" 文章 6.)
