Dear Immanuel,

Thanks very much for your response! I sourced the poem from the April 1980
edition of 조선문학 (obviously pg50) but it also appears on page 5 of the Dec.
1984 edition of the same publication so that is why I'm stumped as to when
it could have originally been created. If I can't confirm the date with
your kind help, I'm sure providing the above two citations should suffice.
Many thanks again, and Merry Christmas!
