My Favorite Poem

Ten Years It Took

Ten years it took
To build my little cottage.
Now the cool wind inhabits half of it
And the rest is filled with moonlight.

There is no place left for the mountain and the stream
So I guess they will have to stay outside.

by Song Sun (1493-1583)
Translated by Virginia Olsen Baron and Chung Seuk Park
