From the publisher’s website:

From A Warm Family…

“ The sun is going down,
and in the pureness of silence
I drop the day’s anchor.
As I shed the sweat-soaked clothes
stars in the night sky draw near to me
to be my friends, and my family.…”

—Kim Hu-Ran

In this collection of poems, Kim Hu-Ran explores the intimate relations between individuals and groups, from lovers and families to the whole of the world, and between man and nature. Sung in a compassionate voice, these poems affirm that Love is the cure and remedy for the deeply fractured modern world. A Warm Family, Kim’s latest work, woven in highly personal style and lyric tenderness, makes us see light and hear music in it.
