    Ooo Ahh 'JR', your translation alters the poem dramatically, but thanks for it just the same. Is there truly so much scope for interpretation, as appears? (Report) Reply

    A different and, I think, better translation of this poem appeared in Poor Old Tired Horse No.16. The translator was Lesley Lendrum it reads

    'Clouds blow across the sky
    and the wind across the field
    across the field wanders
    my mother's lost child

    Leaves fly across the path
    across the trees the birds fly
    somewhere across the hills
    my far off home must be' (Report) Reply
