Flowers of a Moment: Poem 70

달걀 밖 어미닭
달걀 속 병아리
그들은 온통 한 몸이라네

-고은

outside the egg is a hen
inside the egg is a chick
they are entirely one body

-Ko Un

This is poem 70 from Flowers of a Moment, which is a small volume of poetry by Korean author Ko Un that I am currently translating into English.

I must admit that some of the poems that I worked on this morning proved to be quite a challenge.
