I love you 

 

The golden light at dawn and dusk

The expanse of lush green meadows

The cool sea breeze on summer days

 

The sweat on those lovers brows

The heat of lovers quarrels

The smile of a newborn child

 

The Adam’s apple the snake

The cover of humanity

The soul, a poet.

 

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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