The Flag -Yu Ch'ihwan

 

It is a voiceless clamour,
the handkerchief of eternal nostalgia
rippling toward the blue expanse of ocean.
Like waves in the wind
the chaste heart flutters,
and sorrow like a heron
spreads its wings
on the flagstaff of pure ideal.
Ah, who first knew
how to hoist
this sad plaintive heart
high in the sky?

 

translated by Kevin O'Rourke

 

깃발        - 유치환

 

이것은 소리 없는 아우성

저 푸른 해원(海原)을 향하여 흔드는

영원한 노스탤지어의 손수건

순정은 물결같이 바람에 나부끼고

오로지 맑고 곧은 이념의 푯대 끝에

애수는 백로처럼 날개를 펴다

아 누구던가

이렇게 슬프고도 애달픈 마음을

맨 처음 공중에 달 줄을 안 그는
