The Wayfarer

 

                                                        by Pak Mogwol

 

Across the ferry

by the path through the corn

 

like the moon through the clouds

the wayfarer goes.

 

The road stretches south

three hundred li

 

every wine-mellowing village

afire in the evening light

 

as the wayfarer goes

like the moon through the clouds.
