I looked yonder towards the panoramic landscape
And behold …!
The luminous space of denuded trees and quietly falling snow …
How serene and beautiful
The angels of the cold!
I lay in bed falling asleep
But a trigger from old summer smell brought me there …
Jungle air, fervent air —-
Angels of Eden
They flew me there …
There I immersed
in deep forest
Of humid sweats
And refreshed myself
In the cascading falls …
How wonderful and marvelous
That God alone created them all!
And just as Adam and Eve had to leave the Garden
So also my time in Paradise Lost is just now a memory of days long past…
O how I long for a return Paradise!
That it will be one beyond the realm of space and time.
Though the vivid memory would still occasionally flare,
But no more here nor over there.
Ah…! The Melody of Spring!
The Musical Sound from Heavenly Peace!
Do I see the coming of Maiden Spring?
Of Holy Bliss upon the earth does dwell!
Bells of Hymns!
Do I hear a concert from within?
Was I charmed? Was that whims?
Do I smell the aroma of early Spring?
Of flooding sunshines
Upon the Vastness there!
There I see
Birds of paradise, feathers of wings…
Do I feel the gentle caress of chilly winds?
But, beauty unlike Beauty is —
That glamour allures
So do our eyes deceive.
Where on earth —
Life’s sorrows and savories,
Will always meet.
But for an instance
My stress relieved.
Have I forgotten just how sweet life can be?
Ah! Valley of Silence
O Wonders of God
How I wonder about You
And how I wish to return to You in Christ’s Righteousness
And in harmony and everlasting…
Without even ever fear!
