The Mountain Peach (1)



                                                                  Pak Mogwol


The mountain is

Nine River Mountain,

a lavender-purple rock.


A new bud or two

breaks out along the branches

of the mountain peach.


Spring snow

falls and melts

into jade water,


to which comes

a mountain deer

to wet its feet.
