Poem dedicated to Aung San Suu Kyi from the NLD

Below is a poem by the National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi's party, dedicated to her:

Mother Peacock of Peace
(Dedicated to the 64th Birthday of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the democracy leader of Burmese populace)

Like clear spring water.
Her bosom serene and peaceful
Wish your mind be in peace.

O mother of peace…
May your heart be joyful and smiling,
Your strength may able to fetch the stars in the sky.

O mother of peace…
Your heart is clean.
Like rays of the sun shining on the world,
Your strength is bright.

Surrounded by stars
Competing with the Moon
Her love prestigious
Spreading a pleasing aroma
Myanmar Hey Myanmar
The only one in the whole world.

Though the storm is violent
Mother Peacock will reign the world
With a flower in hear hair.
