two poems by NGUYEN SAO MAI

translated by the author

 

 

 

rain

 

in the mountain dwelling

on her memory,

the forest in reverie,

the spirits of ones

of hundred years ago

were now heard coming close

the drying, dying stream dated

water of a full moon night

for the rocks might clap its hands

amidst the flow in wild dance.

 

where could it be

 

O schoolgirl in thee white dress

wheres now my soul in the lee

of the dress where it used to be?

 

MƯA

 

Lẫn trong ni nhớ rừng m

Người trăm năm hồn nghe đ gần

Suối kh hẹn nước đm rằm

Vỗ tay đ cuội giữa ging cuồng lưu.

 

Ở ĐU

 

Hỡi c o trắng học tr

Hồn ta trn o by giờđu?
