He got out of the bus which had taken him downtown

with a back-pack on his back

-Oh, a little bird was in a small cage

and he carried a corner of the forest with him.


-Oh there, a girl in blue indigo shirt

with smiling eyes

she walked very fast under an umbrella

her smile was as nice as cherry flowers the thin petals of which were quivering

And she gave him her own little love.

When spring came,

people were crowded on the streets

And there was someone very far from home, did he miss the bus?

Then a young soldier came back to his hometown

He carried the spring forest with him to his village to celebrate Tet holidays on time.
