translation from Hangul by Suphil Lee Park

Passing by an Old Fortress


syllabic translation
I’ve driven my horse back here
At a glance the ruins, woods
In this new picturesque world
The old kingdom in shambles
Fighting words back to sea mist
Loyalty looms, sun and stars
Where am I—in all this wreck
Rain freezes up the dark hills
