“Trees” by Moon Yeon-Joo

even when it rains or snows,
remain as always.
But I can’t forget
emotionless faces.
They are just too serious.


비가 와도 눈이 와도
그대로 있다
그래도 진지한 표정을 잊지 않는다
하여튼 나무는 너무 진지하다


This poem was written by Moon Yeon-Joo, a child who participates in a poetry group called Perpetual Tree (계속나무), which started through partnership with a public library. As part of the program, kids take a walk around the area surrounding the library, then write about what they felt and experienced
