Missing the Autumn in Hanoi*

There’s a chill in the air
and it is a cloudy day
Oh how I’m overwhelmed
by nostalgic memories
of the old old days

There’s no Fall in Saigon
where I grew up
Yet I miss Hanoi in the Autumn
The melody keeps
recurring in my mind

Hanoi in the Fall
Strolling among people
I’m wondering if
I’m missing someone
The Autumn sky in Hanoi
will respond to me someday
The roads will have
the answer for me someday

Hanoi in the Autumn
The Autumn in Hanoi
How I miss someone
thus missing everyone

* the title of a popular Vietnamese pop song
The words in italics are lyrics from the song.


      1. I’m a follower of yours and the video was no part of what was sent with your post that I could see in my Inbox. You might check to see if your friend – followers had the same experience. I hope you will include more Vietnamese culture in the future. Thank you for opening my world! – Skylar

        1. Hi Skylar, thanks for letting me know! They did not see the link to the video either. I would need to look into this…
          I’m so pleased that you have enjoyed a few things about Vietnam that I wrote in my posts. I definitely will incorporate more Vietnamese culture in my writing :-). I truly appreciate your feedback!
