It's Too Early To Have Breakfast - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN MD

It’s very early in the morning

I wake up and look at the sky.

It’s a moonless night with some dim stars.

From inside the house, I watch the western sky

Where I see a very bright shining star

Far away, there is a single bright amber light.

This light is located at a quarry of a nearby town.

It’s about three or four in the morning

There is no car running on the road

The whole neighborhood is still in deep sleep.

Ashes sits at the top of the staircase.

As soon as I turn on hallway light, Ashes runs down.

Noel already woke up.

He sits on a windowsill looking at the sky and stars

Hallway light has been on and he looks at me

Quickly he looks away when I approach him.

It’s not eating time yet,

I will wait untill they come to ask for food.

ĐÊM KHUYA CHƯA TỚI GIỜ ĂN - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN


Đêm khuya thức dậy nhìn trời

Nền trời chỉ có sao mờ, không trăng.

Tôi nhìn về phía trời tây

Một ngôi sao sáng chiếu ngang mái nhà.

Xa xa một ngọn đèn vàng

Nơi này hầm đá của làng ở bên.

Bây giờ ba bốn giờ đêm

Đường không xe xhạy, ngủ yên xóm làng.

Ashes ngồi đỉnh cầu thang

Tôi bật đèn sáng, nó nhào xuống ngay.

Noel đã dậy từ lâu

Nó ngồi cửa sổ, nhìn sao nhìn trời.

Hành lang đèn đã sáng rồi

Nó nhìn tôi tới, quay đầu nhìn ra.

Bây giờ, chưa tới giờ ăn

Chờ khi chúng đói, tới gần xin ăn.
