Nguyễn Lãm Thắng | you’re as beautiful as the flow of water (24)

you’re as beautiful as the flow of water
how could I
ever keep up
knowing
you could
take me
away

By Nguyễn Lãm Thắng, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

 

you’re as beautiful as the flow of water

 

you’re as beautiful as the flow of water

how could I 

ever keep up 

knowing 

you could 

take me 

away

 

em đẹp như dòng nước chảy

em đẹp

như dòng nước chảy

tôi

không bao giờ đuổi kịp

biết rằng

em

có thể cuốn tôi đi

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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