Lê Vĩnh Tài |The poem, it’s a child (284)

the poem, it’s a child when it’s still imaginary

until the moment it ceases to question and have meaning

that is when it has grown up…

By Lê Vĩnh Tài, translated by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

bài thơ, nó là một đứa trẻ con khi còn là một ảo ảnh

đến khi nó chấm dứt sự đánh đố và có nghĩa

là lúc nó trưởng thành…

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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