Treasure Island

Ho Xuan Huong

(1772 - 1822 / Nghệ An Province)

Confession III


Her lonely boat fated to float aimlessly
midstream, weary with sadness, drifting.

She rows on, not caring who tries to dock,
sails on, not caring who tries the rapids.

Whoever comes on board is pleased
as she plucks her guitar, sad and drifting.

Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
