By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

Precious is…the moments
Rare is the chance
Discover i… a precious gem
Brightest of diamonds
Reddest of rubies
More fragrant than a field of roses…
My girl, a little sister
Possibly from the last life:
Little Miss Mischief (Quinn Tran)
and the Rose Thief (Juia Thanh Thuỷ)

By Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

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