My First English Words


Purple heart, green grass, black granite, American alphabets

Abstractness, your unforgettable mission of Peace

Parachutes, helicopters, the sound of the fleeting war jets

Airstrips of Hue, Da Nang, Sai Gon

Somber Sundays, the jungles' sunsets

Allegiance to human Freedom

Nectar of midnight flowers filled the strange forests...
