The flower laughs when the bumblebee speaks,
You don’t laugh when I speak.
Spring greets Earth and touches it,
But you never come close to me.
High above, the clouds float and embrace the sky,
You don’t embrace me even in my dreams.
The moonlight brightens the dark sky,
But your light never reaches my heart.
The bird lovingly calls its partner to the nest,
But your voice is silent.
Near the shore of the river the boat is tied up,
when I went for my bath I saw
it was dancing on the waves.
Today I saw it far away
in the middle of the river
pulled by the ebb-tide.
I know not where it will end up,
what will people be like, and in what kind of attire!
sitting in the corner of my room, I have a longing____
to float just like the boat brother,
to a new city.
Far in the ocean on the river bank

where the coconut trees lined up on the edge.
The dressed up peak of the mountain between the blue sky
no one can break the ice and jump over.
Where is that place where new fruits and flowers
strange animals move in groups.
At the end of so many nights the boat floats away___
why does Dad go to work I wonder
and not to a new country yonder?
