Goddess of Spring and Love

E-mail Print PDF

Who is that calling from the depths of the forest? 
In the lonely silence of the dawn,
Like the exuberant voice of a silver bell;
Calling whom? 
Oh!  Goddess of Love! 
Goddess of Spring and Love.

Who is that calling from the depths of the forest? 
In the loneliness of the dusk,
Like the exuberant voice of a silver bell,
Traverses the forest,
Oh!  Goddess of Love! 
Who is that calling from the depths of the high mountains?

In that forest of my far, far away homeland,
With an exuberant voice. 
Someone is calling.
Oh!  Goddess of Love!  Goddess of Spring and Love.
Goddess of Spring and Love.


(This lyric is written by Uyongu Yatauyungana during the early 1950's.  The lyrics depict Yatauyungana's longing for his wife, as well as to comfort and encourage her, while he was held by the KMT regime in the Ching-Tao East Road Detention Center.)

Newsflash

The government must grant medical parole to former president Chen Shui-bian (陳水扁), not only for the sake of protecting his rights, but for the sake of social stability, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) said yesterday.

“Since former president Chen Shui-bian’s health is failing, the DPP calls on President Ma Ying-jeou [馬英九] to respect the assessments of medical professionals and grant him medical parole, so he may receive appropriate treatment at home,” DPP spokesperson Huang Di-ying (黃帝穎) said yesterday. “By granting Chen medical parole, Ma would be acting in accordance with the two international human rights covenants that he signed, and which the legislature adopted as law.”
