Written in Korean and translated by Ihlwha Choi
LUNCH TIME Magpies eat the cat's lunch after the feline finishes. Sparrows eat the leftovers after the magpies finish. Since a monk gave the cat something to eat, The cat ate lunch with relish. The magpies and sparrows also were satiated. After all finished their lunch, The monk entered his sunbang* to take a nap. The cat climbed to the hill to rest in the shade. The magpie and sparrows scattered in the field to play with friends. *sunbang(禪房):A room for Zen meditation at a Buddhist temple
