Korean to English: 낙화 Falling Flowers
Source text - Korean

가야할 때가 언제인가를

분명히 알고 가는 이의

뒷모습은 얼마나 아름다운가

봄 한철

격정을 인내한

나의 사랑은 지고 있다

분분한 낙화

결별이 이룩하는 축복에 싸여

지금은 가야할 때

무성한 녹음과 그리고

머지않아 열매 맺는

가을을 향하여

나의 청춘은 꽃답게 죽는다


섬세한 손길을 흔들며

하롱하롱 꽃잎이 지는 어느날

나의 사랑, 나의 결별

샘 터에 물 고인듯 성숙하는

내 영혼의 슬픈 눈

(1957년에 이형기님이 25세에 발표한 낙화라는 시입니다)
Translation - English

How beautiful is the parting

Of one who knows exactly

When to leave

My love is withering

After enduring the passion of

The peak of spring

Fluttering falling flowers

Now is the time to leave

Amid parting blessing

My youth is dying like flowers

Falling toward rich green and

Autumn, which will

Soon bear fruit

Let us part

On a day when flowers fall, petal by petal

Waving their delicate hands

My love, my farewell

My soul's sad eyes

Maturing like water welling in a fountain

(Poem "Falling Flowers" by Lee Hyung Ki in 1957 when he was 25)
