In royal hue

In Royal Hue

Buhda’s way

And Fuedal sway

Were swept away.

The French came back,

Yanks in their track,

To prevent break of dawn

Their intent

They could only postpone

Great event.

A poet’s dream

So calm and serene,

Ho’s early residence

Ancient charm in evidence.

Boundless extravagance

Of late royal decadence,

Eclectic without measure,

The city of great leisure

And undying romance,

Its beauty didn’t enhance.

Music of Bagota’s gong

Tender as your lover song

Moving up the river

Echoes on forever

And answer echoes

Answer, loving,

Loving, loving

Hanoi, November 1975
