The Vietnamese people love poetry and romantic music. This book is a collection of Vietnamese song lyrics and verse, translated by a bilingual poet with over three decades of writing poetry. The book also include some poems written in English and translated back to Vietnamese. There are over 130 song lyrics and poems, written by many authors, covering various themes: love, homeland, memories, dreams, patriotism, Zen enlightenment, etc. Most of the selections are Vietnamese poetry and song classics. A poem or song is not unlike a flower, wherever it blooms. It was a delightful and artistic journey for me to bring over homeland flowers and replant them in the universal English garden to share with poetry lovers around the world. I wish the reader a pleasant time walking in “A Garden of Vietnamese Lyrics & Verse” and enjoy the exotic fragrances of flowers from the Orient. A sample edition in pdf format, with over 20 poems and songs, is available for download and distribution from the author's page on Amazon.com.
