ahn hyeon was laid to rest amongst kings.
chang would not have him lesser than that.
he was strong in life – Seo-Bi.
his death was not of your doing – Yeong Shin.
he will find his way safely to the afterlife – Beom-Pal.
he crushed the white flowers in his hand as the lament began.
an evil death has set forth the noble warrior,
the sorrows of magpies’ sing,
him, who have always held us dear,
now is trapped in darkness, enclosed.
how do you give voice to the grief – the animal, howling in you?
