first flurry


It’s been snowing here again today, started off as soft flurries and then continued steadily all day. As I watched the snow fall, I was reminded of this poem — enjoy!

First Flurry by Chung Dong-muk

From the warm spring
You passed through time
Content in the green of summer
Surrounded by the piles of persimmon leaves
Autumn was so solitary
It is winter once again
Yet even when the bright white snow
Envelops the whole world
Beneath the covers
The green shoots of nature will grow
