Rain by Jeong Ji-yong

(translated from the Korean by geul)

 

Shadow passes
over stone,

*

Elsewhere a chill wind
gathers.

*

Vying together
tails flying up,

*

Spindly-legged
mountain bird scurrying.

*

A rapid forms
gaunt white current,

*

Splitting off
fingers outspread.

*

Pause
Sudden drops spurt,

*

Noisily treading
red leaves.
