My Dreams of 'The Land of the Morning Calm' (Regional)


It began on a wonderful summer morning.
It was the most amazing romance around.
She was the most beautiful loving place I have seen.

She was my Seoul,
My lovely 'Land of Morning Calm,
My Loving Korea.
We used to love so well together.
Back then.
I wanted to smile together, wave to the world,
I wanted to see it all.

But one morning, one great morning,
We decided to smile too much.
Together we kissed a Korean Magpie flying high.
It was respectful, so respectful as a white tiger chasing evil away.

From that moment, our relationship changed.
She grew so modern with bright lights everywhere.

Then it happened:
Oh no! Oh no!
We slept under a cherry blossom tree.
Alas, a cherry blossom tree!
I fell asleep under a cherry blossom tree.
So beautiful, so entertaining my Korean dreams.

The next day I thought my mind had broken,
I thought my dreams had burst into flames,
(But I was actually overreacting a little.)
But still, she is in my thoughts.
I think about how it all changed that morning,
That awesome summer morning.

Only a dream... ouch!
When I think of that beautiful loving site,
That beautiful, loving place.
I miss my Korean dreams.

"Is it possible to miss a place you've never been? To mourn a time you never lived? "

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
