59.

文章李太白이요

筆法王羲之라.

一日不讀書면

口中生荊棘이라.

花有重開日이나

人無更少年이라.

白日莫虛送하라

靑春不再來니라.

For calligraphy, Wang Xi Zhi. 2

A day without reading,

The mouth grows thorns and thistles.

Poem 60 : Petra Sváková


Flowers, [they] have a day [when they] blossom again;

People, [they] do not have a year [when they are] younger again.

Daytime, do not send away in vain;

Youth, does not come back again.


  • Discussion Questions:

+ I am not very sure about the translation of the third line - "白日莫虛送", I feel like there is something missing.
