Thai Poets:-) for U

FATHOMS DEEP THOUGH THE SEA
MAYBE’
MEASURABLE ARE THE SEAS
IN DEPTH.
SCALED CAN MOUNTAINS BE
IN HEIGHT.
IMMEARSURABLE IS THE DEPTHÁ
THE HEART OF MAN.

Isn’t this poet sounds great…very philosophal:-)
This is one of my favorite Thai Poet(which had been translated to English).The original poet in Thai comes from one of the ancient Thai proverb that had been composed during the Kingdom of Ayutthaya Dynasty.
This english version comes from the book called “Interpretative Translations of Thai Poets(1978)
So if anyone would like to appreciate Thai Poets.I’d look for more next times 🙂

I have to cut this short again. Jeep is busy with his Mid-Term exam

    สายดิ่งทิ้งทอดมาหยั่งได้
    เขาสูงอาจวัดวากำหนด
    จิตมนุษย์นี้ไซร้ยากแท้หยั่งถึง
