LEE KUEI-SHIEN

MY TAIWAN, MY HOPE
我的台灣我的希望

I hear your sound from the morning birds singing.
I feel your passion from the noon sunshine.
I watch your magnificence from sunset glow.
Oh, Taiwan, my home, my love.

The coasts have your curve.
The waves have your surge.
The clouds have your elegance.
The flowers have your gesture.
The leaves have your evergreen.
The woods have your burliness.
The bedrocks have your sturdiness.
The mountains have your loftiness.
The streams have your meander.
The rocks have your grandeur.
The roads have your roughness.
Oh, Taiwan, my land, my dream.

In your lung there is my breath.
In your history there is my life.
In your being there is my consciousness.
Oh, Taiwan, my country, my hope.







LOVE SONG FROM THE SEA
海的情歌

The sea has been inquiring
the emotion of  the land
to get response by the rocks.
The waves sometimes rush
sometimes retreat quickly
always embrace the curved coast
while sing an exciting love song
in sputtering
to the silent land.
The land accumulates the feelings in mind
to prepare a volcanic eruption,
a presentation of most flaming hot.







SUNSET GLOW
晚霞

The sunset glow is astonishing
as a message of  burning flames of war.
Is that a disaster of past years
or a misfortune in  future
or the foreign people over thousand miles
is suffering from ravage
orvictims are distressed in relentless torment.
The birds dispatch the news by express
and the ships bound for rescue in urgent.
The beautiful scenery is grieved
that soon be trapped into darkness.
