    after Yun Dongju

Seven mountain doves
that everyone wants to hold
A holiday morn so clear
that sky's end is nearly seen
On a harvested barren field
the doves squabble and scratch for food
and share troublesome gossip.

With slender wings beating silent air
two doves descend
concerned perhaps for their nestlings.

--tr. Duane Vorhees
