Ước Muốn

Có nhiều khi thấy ta là thác đổ
Mạch nước ngầm dào dạt chảy về đâu
Ngàn năm rong chơi, cuối trời phiêu lãng
Quên phận lạc loài, xoa dịu nỗi đau

Có nhiều khi muốn làm con sóng nhỏ
Nhập nhô vờn trắng xóa vỗ tung tăng
Theo định mệnh con tàu xô lướt gió
Ca hát đêm về, nhảy múa cùng trăng

Có nhiều khi muốn làm người mất trí
Dạo bước lang thang giữa phố chợ đời
Nhìn trần gian khóc cười bao khổ lụy
Rũ muộn phiền, lòng điên dại thảnh thơi

Có nhiều khi ước hồn mình bay bổng
Lánh vui buồn, xa cõi tạm phù du
Từ giã bơ vơ, chìm sâu giấc mộng
Chạm bóng mình trơ trọi với thiên thu

Mai Hoài Thu



Wishes

There were times I imagined that I was a cascade,
An effusive artesian well, I boundlessly displayed,
Thousand years wandering, on the horizon driving
To forget my infelicitous fate, the distress surviving.

There were times I wanted to be a small wave
To hover, swash, as a white horse free to behave,
Dashed by ships as predestined gliding in monsoon,
Singing when night falls, dancing with the moon.

There were times I wished I had become insane,
Strolling amid life’s markets, this earthly domain,
Watching people’s ups and downs, much to agonize,
To cast off depression, sorrow, so that nothing ties.

There were times I desired my soul to fly very high
To avoid vicissitudes, away from this world awry,
Tried to break up loneliness, deep dreams, however,
I encountered my shadow, forlorn for ever and ever.
