The Silk Dress

by Nguyen Sa
translated by Duong Xuan

On me suddenly cool the Saigon sun
for you are wearing your dress
of Ha Dong[1] silk
so much your silk dress I ever loved
my poem is still as pure as your silk

Yet I remember you sitting right here
while short was your hair
all around the autumn just lengthy
my soul hurriedly painted your portrait
then hurriedly displayed in my ready heart

A day seeing you a day of elation
seeing you for two days
the post-wedding's ecstasy
my adolescent poems I piled up a mountain
while your eyes ageing into the arousing wine

You had not said
I'd already heard
the whole symphony
you had not looked
the whole sky had already turned blue

My faithful love and I looked up to you
your virtuous hands and you
had nestled in our wonderful poem.
You came and went all too suddenly
of that I was always aware.

It was sunny then rainy all too suddenly
about that I did not really care.
But why leave without leaving a word?
Leaving without leaving
a word!

When I called!
echoing
only the confusion from my eyes
I got angry!

I got angry
as my poem did not say the word

Gone you have
and now repentance runs my lips
on my sad shoulders
time turns heavy

Where have you gone?
my short haired autumn!

Please save for me
your dress of Ha Dong silk
that silk dress
so much I always love

Save for me
please
the love poem in that pure silk!
