The wind doesn’t ask the way

By Yang, Geum-Hee

No matter how much time goes by,

Wind never getting older

Even though Wind doesn’t have a mouth,

Wind always say something what have to say

Even though Wind doesn’t have eyes,

Never lose her direction


When Wind face an angular face,

Wind always blowing somewhere else,

Without scratching or hurting

Wind never stay,

Even though face soft place


When can I run on the crooked road on the earth

Without asking for directions


바람은 길을 묻지 않는다



세월이 가도

늙지 않는

바람의 나이


입이 없어도

말을 하고

눈이 없어도

방향을 잃지 않는다


모난 것에도

긁히지 않고

부드러운 것에도

머물지 않는다


나는 언제쯤

길을 묻지 않고

지상의 구부러진 길을

바람처럼 달려갈 있을
