Lê Vĩnh Tài is a Vietnamese poet, a resident of the West Highlands. A retired medical doctor, currently an acclaimed businessman in Buon Ma Thuot.
The original epic poem was published in 2015, and I had began the translation of Tibet by Lê Vĩnh Tài mid July 2019, it took me more than two years to fully finalised and published the translation on #songngutaitram .
I’m hoping to one day get the opportunity to read this incredible poem for you live.
a mountain imposing
into the clouds biting
two arms two wings
sừng sững như một ngọn núi
cắn vào mây
hai tay hai cánh
