Ku Sang - Poet ,South Korea

Email Print PDF
flowersColumban Kevin O'Rourke offers his translation of a poem by Ku Sang, one of Korea's finest Catholic poets, with the comment that he can't imagine a more Easter centred statement of the beauty of  life:
I want the ecstasy of flight
I want to don wings in the company of the angels,
to be a caterpillar become a butterfly,
to have the whole planetary system as my garden
