The eventual arrival of dusk
by Phan Thanh gian
Is it so unexpected?
Why haven't we thought of it more?
It's just as predictable as sunrise.
As the day's buzzing warmth fades
Cold dusk seeps within us.
When long silence pervades the air
When twilight draws its last breath.
Bring us the long awaited rest
Because we had daylong struggle
Bring us the soft blue dream
Because our living world is harsh red...
