A Poem by Nguyen Van Luat
Tình em sưởi ấm mùa xuấn trẻ,
Mang nắng chan hòa nhuộm sắc hoa.
Anh muốn gom mưa từ bốn bể
Để em tưới mát những chồi tơ!
Your feeling warms Young Spring Season
As overflowing sunlight multi-colours flowers!
I would like to bring rainfall from Four Oceans
Supporting you in irrigating forest buds by fresh water!
(Editor’s note: The poem is written in the traditional form of Vietnamese poetry translated into English by the author.)
