Kim-Anh Bui | RAIN – MƯA (5)

oh the rain
each small drop
through the tin roof rhythmic scatter

By Kim-Anh Bui, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

RAIN

 

oh the rain

each small drop

through the tin roof rhythmic scatter

 

oh the white

each thread of white

the bursts of silver through hair locks

what could ever hold back time

_____

 

MƯA

 

kìa mưa

từng giọt nhỏ

mái tôn thủng gõ nhịp rời

 

kìa trắng

từng sợi trắng

bạc òa trên mái tóc

có gì cột thời gian được đâu

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

There's magic in translating a body of work from one language to another.
