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

Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Chairperson Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) ended months-long speculation yesterday, announcing DPP Secretary-General Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) as her running mate for next year’s presidential election.

Su said he is ready to tackle the challenge with his political experience and the “excellent chemistry” he has with Tsai, as the pair had led the DPP’s recovery from a landslide loss in the 2008 presidential election.

The Tsai-Su ticket will challenge President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九), who is running for re-election, in what public opinion polls show could be a neck-and-neck race. Ma of the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) announced on June 19 that he would pair up with Premier Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) for the January poll.
