Another Translation of Professor Vu's Poem

Non logic


Just because non-logic

That makes me sad



The sun is brightly shining

The rain is suddenly pouring

The full moon hangs on the sky

The crescent moon will come

The thought of having lifelong memory

But is easily forgotten with time

Imagining a rock hard and durable

But is also easily rotten and broken



Small fragile dew is falling

Making you’re whole life melancholy

That is an unspeakable logic

Which is only understood from the heart

You could not see it with reason

All the deep and under

Your sorrows in your life

Are all non logical theory



Isheen Herrera



This is the translation I find most pleasant to read of the three, although each one has interesting features.
