Eight Gates (Korea Regional)


Memories of my past continue to haunt me,
In my dreams every night.

Our spirits swore their faith for all ages.

Open gates let into our lives;

Loyalty,
Goodwill,
To Rule Solemnly,
Exalted Ceremonies,

Showing the Correct thing,
Wisdom.
Bright Light and,
Justice for all.

We only need to find the courage to
Walk through just one,
To make our dreams
Come true.

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
