Muộn làm mất
Chiếc áo sạch duy nhất
Là áo chim cò.

Hai cằm rồi
Tôi đến phải nuôi
Râu đúp.

*

Khi đoàn tàu rời ga
Lớp mascara của nàng
Tuôn chảy.

    I like the translation. It’s funny. Can u give some more?

  2. Nhat Co says:

    I follow all the links but don’t see English version of the last poem. The two above are witty both in English and Vietnamese.

  3. Nguyen says:

    I like the poem and your translation is creative and funny.

  4. Admin says:

    All: Thanks for your comments. At least, you made me think that I was successful in translating “senryu”, a very pithy and witty type of poems.

    MXX: I translated more than three, but the rest seem to be out-of-tone translation. So I’d rather draw a curtain over them.

    Nhat Co: The last poem was in Issue 1 Winter 2009.

    Thanks Liam and Trang. I like the first poem very much. I used to be in an awkward situation when my only available suit was maternity dress. :))

    Great job! I know it’s not easy to translate this kind of poems. You’ve fully transmitted the ideas of the poet.

  7. [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Denis Garrison, Liam Wilkinson. Liam Wilkinson said: A few of my senryu have been translated into Vietnamese: http://bit.ly/amdzpW #senryu #micropoetry [...]
