COUNTING THE STARS AT NIGHT

by Yun Dong Ju

Up where the seasons pass,
the sky is filled with autumn.
In this untroubled quietude
I could almost count these autumn-couched stars.

But why I cannot now enumerate
those one or two stars in my breast
is because the dawn is breaking soon,
and I have tomorrow night in store,
and because my youth is not yet done.

Memory for one star,
love for another star,
sorrow for another star,
longing for another star,
poetry for another star,
and oh! mother for another star.

Mother! I try to call each star by some such evocative word, names of school children with whom I shared desks, names of alien girls like Pai, Kyunh, Ok, names of maidens who have already become mothers, names of neighbors who lived in poverty, names of birds and beasts like pigeon, puppy, rabbit, donkey, deer,and names of poets like Francis, Jammes and Reiner Maria Rilke.

They are as far away
and intangible as the stars.

Mother!
You too are in the distant land of the Manchus.

Because I have a secret yearning,
seated on this star-showered bank,
I have written my name thereon
and covered it with earth.
In truth, it is because the insects chirp
all night to grieve over my bashful name.

But spring shall come to my stars after winter's delay,
greening the turf over the graves,
so this bank that buries my name
shall proudly wear the grass again.

Another new book brought home by my lil bro 😍
After reading J.M.Lee's Investigation about the prison life of Yun Dong Ju, I became so fascinated with this Korean Bard who lived a short life of 28 years. I found his verse and prose beautifully written for its youthful spirit, simplicity and sincerity. So happy when I found out that his collected poems and proses "Sky, Wind, Star and Poetry" had been translated to Indonesian and published by @pustakaobor_id 💕

Have you read The My Life As An Album Series yet? My Life As A Country Album and My Life As A Pop Album are both available for purchase on Amazon. Evans' third book My Life As A Rock Album releases soon so grab your copies of these soon and get all caught up runtime for her new release!
I downloaded this book on my kindle because @theloudlibrarylady loved it. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 My Life As A Country Album by LJ Evans. This self published book has songs tied into it that relate to the story in the book and since I am a country music fan this made me feel better. I would not have classified this as a romance book but a book of love, loss, grief and rebuilding. As twenty year story of children three years apart that have no idea how to live without one another until fate hands them no other choice. Then support, love, understanding, and a great group of friends help rebuild Cami into a person she can be happy with again. Be ready to cry on more than one occasion and for oh so many reasons! I later purchased the actual book for my library shelf!
I purchased this book on Amazon to read. All opinions are my own. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 My Life As A Pop Album by L. J. Evans. After reading My Life As A Country Album, I was excited to know more! (See my previous review for details). In this book, we get to know Mia's story of Jake and Cam and life after from her point of view. I was excited and intrigued. In the first book we only got glimpses of Mia as the little sister. Now Mia is all grown up and on her way to the biggest adventure of her life. She is going across the country spelunking with a gorgeous musician and his band. Despite the beautiful scenery she enjoys, she begins to understand life and love and happiness. She rescues a kitty, herself, and most of all Derek, (The sexy musician she refuses to fall in love with). On her journey, reality hits her hard and she runs scared but hoping for more. This book contains passionate scenes between two people that will leave you feeling in awe and satisfied with life all in one moment. It is not an over the top romance but still a romance indeed.

Creativity is intelligence having fun. - Albert Einstein
We can’t wait to for this fun filled reading event!

I can’t stop myself from owning it!
The contents matter!Stop staring at the cover! 😅

Literary experience heals the wound, without undermining the privilege, of individuality. There are mass emotions which heal the wound; but they destroy the privilege. In them our separate selves are pooled and we sink back into sub-individuality. But in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like a night sky in the Greek poem, I see with a myriad eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself; and am never more myself than when I do.
-C.S Lewis
