“Beside a Chrysanthemum” by So Chong-ju
To bring one chrysanthemum to flower
The cuckoo has cried since spring.
To bring one chrysanthemum to bloom
Thunder has rolled
Through the black clouds.
Flower, like my sister returning
From distant, youthful byways
Of throat-tight longing
To stand by the mirror:
For your yellow petals to open,
Last night such a frost fell,
And I could not sleep
