The blue mountains are what they are,
So are the green waters.
The mountains and rivers are what they are.
Why should I, who live with them, be just what I am?
I want a life as real as theirs
Because I am a part of the universe, too.
청산도 절로절로, 녹수도 절로절로,
산 절로 수 절로, 산수간에 나도 절로,
그 중에 절로 자란 몸이 늙기도 절로 하리라.
Good Man informs me that 절로절로 is a word that’s no longer in use. According to a blog I found, it means “naturally.”
