Whenever

Koo Hyun-Seo, Gimhae Jeil High School

Gimhae, Gyeongsangnamdo.

 

When a man falls in love

He wants to give her his everything,

Even his heart, if you

Need. So please love him a lot. His

Everything is you. And he thinks you are like a

Vase. So careful, so precious, so pretty. His

Everything is you. And he thinks you are like a

Rose. Very red.

In Janine’s words, “Hyun-Seo’s poem intertwines the emotions of a high school student with the poetry of Robert Burns and his ‘red red rose.’ Hyun-Seo’s use of repetition and simile and metaphor (which we didn’t learn in class until the following week!) shows his creative spirit.”
