Daily Dose

From Selected Translations, by W. S. Merwin


I will choose a place where the snakes feel safe.
All day I will love that remote country.
At times I will climb the peak of its lonely mountain
to stay and whistle until the sky grows cold.

By Khong Lo, translated in 1967 with Nguyen Ngoc Bich
