Having spent some very little time in South Korea I was impressed by the culture and being an avid poetry lover and writer I share with you a translation of 16th century poet Chong Ch’ol

A sudden shower/splatters the lotus leaf/but I cannot find the track of water/I wish my heart/were like that leaf, that nothing ever stained it.

I acknowledge the translation of Fr Kevin O’Rourke
