Flowers of a Moment: Poem 49

초등학교 유리창마다
석양이 빛나고 있다

그 유리창 하나하나가 실컷 신들이었다



the setting sun shines through
each elementary school window

every one of those windows was an illimitable god

-Ko Un



This is poem 49 from Flowers of a Moment, which is a small volume of poetry by Korean author Ko Un that I am currently translating into English.
