Here is a Korean sijo poem for day nine of national poetry month. Sijo poems are three lines of 14-16 syllables with a pause in each line and a twist at the end.


Let me ask you, Time, do you mark your own passing?

My hair was like grass in summer, my young legs could climb like spring elk.

Sit by the fire a while, perhaps you have regrets too?

    “Just one more thing,” he pauses, “hair?”
