VU THI AN
White summer night
On the white summer night, the moon shines
brightly on the top of the hill
dews kisses the delicate leaves in the forest
stars fall gracefully softly in my eyes
dark of the night I feel the cold breeze
bright whiteness of the moon.
the white summer nights decorate my soul
with wondrous poetic awakening.
Watching the midnight moon atop of the hill
intoxicated as my soul being divided
into separate paths.
have left bringing with you my love
I have left is the melancholic white summer
