잠자리의 집

상상은 여권이 필요없는 여행이다

짙은 ~ 첫눈

Zitten, “First Snow”

 

I remember when I was first learning Korean and I was so frustrated by the fact that the Korean word for “snow” and “eyes” was the same: 눈 ( /no͞on/ ). Half the time I couldn’t tell which it was supposed to be! But fortunately by now it seems like I’ve picked up enough additional vocabulary to tell the difference – context is everything!

Progress is a slow and often embarrassing journey, so if anyone happens to be traveling with me on this painful experience, I just want to say: keep going! If you work hard, it DOES get easier ♡

 

한국어:

눈이 오는 새벽에

나만 잠 못 드는지

세상은 너무나 고요해

어두운 밤을 밝히는

가로등을 감싸고

눈송이가 춤을 추는 밤

 

바람이 거세지면

어디론가 흩어져

함께했던 기억도 잊겠지

바닥에 던져져서

다시 만나게 돼도

얼어붙은 마음뿐인 걸

 

아침이 와 이젠 사라져야 해

모든 게 녹아 흘러가겠지만

어제 추던 그 춤을 기억해

다시 만나는 그날까지

 

이 세상에 눈으로 오는 날

바람결에 흩어져 간대도

잡은 두 손 꼭 놓치지 말자

어디로든 함께 떠나자

 

바람이 거세지면

어디론가 흩어

져 함께했던 기억도 잊겠지

바닥에 던져져서

다시 만나게 되면

그땐 나를 알는지

 

아침이 와 이젠 사라져야 해

모든 게 녹아 흘러가겠지만

어제 추던 그 춤을 기억해

다시 만나는 그날까지

 

이 세상에 눈으로 오는 날

바람결에 흩어져 간대도

잡은 두 손 꼭 놓치지 말자

어디로든 함께 떠나자

 

시간이 흘러갈수록

나도 그대를 잊어

 

이 세상에 눈으로 오는 날

바람결에 흩어져 간대도

잡은 두 손 꼭 놓치지 말자

어디로든 함께 떠나자

 

 

English:

At dawn, when snow is falling

I wonder if I’m the only one unable to sleep

The world is incredibly hushed

[The dark night enshrouds

the shining streetlamps]

Snowflakes dance in the night

 

If the wind becomes fierce,

it will swirl around somewhere

It will forget even our memories together

It will throw them on the ground

so that if we happen to meet again

our hearths will simply be frozen

 

Morning comes, I should disappear

Everything will melt and flow away, but

remember the dance we danced yesterday

until the day we meet again

 

On days that arrive in this world with snow,

even if the wind blows around,

let’s hold hands and never let go

Let’s go somewhere

 

If the wind becomes fierce,

it will swirl around somewhere

It will forget even our memories together

It will throw them on the ground

so that if we manage to meet again

I wonder if you’ll recognize me

 

Morning comes, I should disappear

Everything will melt and flow away, but

remember the dance we danced yesterday

until the day we meet again

 

On days that arrive in this world with snow,

even if the wind blows around,

let’s hold hands and never let go

Let’s go somewhere

 

The more time passes,

the more even I will forget you

 

On days that arrive in this world with snow,

even if the wind blows around,

let’s hold hands and never let go

Let’s go somewhere
