Night song

By Hung Long Tom

What is the song
That the wind
Plays in the tall bamboo?

Oh, gentle lady,
In the azure night
It is playing
My love for you.

Do you not hear
The song
I breathe into the air
Bidding the moonbeams softly
To caress your hair?

Am I alone in your thoughts
Or are there others there?

Oh, lovely lady,
If you love me true
Let the wind
Whisper your answer
In the tall bamboo.
