Noel Prowls For Preys - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN MD

Noel is sitting there by himself

Bunchingup four legs, what is he prowling for?

Nothing I can see or hear

But with better hearing ability,

it looks like Noel hears something.

Sitting quietly, I keep observing the cat.

His snout is now flat on the floor

He changeshis limb positions, ready to attack.

Awaiting for a long while but not able to get the prey

The cat changes his mind and the hunting is over.

Now and then, he got a stink bug who crawled around

Or a fly or mosquito who flew across the room.

Usually he was successful but not this time

He gets only empty paws, so he has to wait until next call.




Noel ngồi đó một mình

Bốn chân chụm lại, đang rình cái chi?

Tôi thì chẳng thấy, chẳng nghe

Noel tai thính, chắc nghe thấy gì.

Ngồi yên, tôi ngắm tình hình

Noel vẫn đợi, mắt nhìn chăm chăm.

Miệng thì áp dí trên sàn

Bốn chân đổi thế, sẵn sàng tấn công.

Chờ hoài chẳng bắt được mồi

Noel đổi ý, hết rồi cuộc săn.

Đôi khi bọ xít bò quanh

Con ruồi, con muỗi bay ngang trong phòng.

Thường thì mèo lập chiến công

Lần này tay trắng, thôi chờ lần sau.
