흔들리며 피는 꽃 (Flowers That Bloom When Shaken)

image

흔들리지 않고 피는 꽃이
어디 있으랴?
이 세상 그 어떤 아름다운 꽃들도
다 흔들리며 피었나니
흔들리면서 줄기를 곧게 세웠나니
흔들리지 않고 가는 사랑이
어디 있으랴?

젖지 않고 피는 꽃이
어디 있으랴?
이 세상 그 어떤 빛나는 꽃들도
다 젖으며 젖으며 피었나니
바람과 비에 젖으며
꽃잎 따뜻하게 피웠나니
젖이 않고 가는 삶이
어디 있으랴?

ㅡ도종환

Translation:
Where is the flower that blooms without shaking?
Any of the beautiful flowers in this world all bloom while being shaken.
They shake on stems that grow upright.
Where is the love that goes without shaking?

Where is the flower that blooms without being soaked?
Any of the shining flowers of this world bloom as they are soaked.
Soaked by wind and rain, petals bloom warmly.
Where is the life that goes without being soaked?

ㅡDo Jong-Hwan

(I tried transcribing it myself but I got some of the words wrong. That being said, the translation I got from the recap on Dramabeans. The photo is mine, though. Anyway, heard this piece on School 2013 episode 10, from Jang Na-Ra. Found it necessary to write it down on my journal.)
