Preparing to welcome the birth of a child, Le Minh Quoc likened this feeling to “Listening to the breath of the germinating land”. He was startled as if he were looking at the work of sculptor Diem Phung Thi, watching the mother possessing the image of a small earth in her belly. Then, accompanying my wife towards the ultimate goal of “round mother and square child”: Spread your arms, rub the round earth / Listen to the breath that lulls the rhythm of poetry / Grows up the young buds / Grows in the days of childhood growing up… And enjoying the joy from the baby’s cry: “The best voice in the world / The baby who plays while crying in the cradle”.

The baby’s stirring, crying, even sleeping. Drunk is still the most magical moment.” And he asserted: “In this world, the masterpiece that makes us look at it engrossedly, can only be when looking at you.

Every time I finished speaking, I played the child’s role to answer. From one thing to another, as long as you feel happy, your mind is excited.” Just like that, day by day, day by day, from where a new word is pronounced, now it is two words. The young boy babbled, but it sounded like a bird singing. The sound of the stream was ringing. The sound of the piano was playing…

Or: “I am small now / Fresh with flower buds / Nu nun nu na / Old bamboo shoots grow / Study hard / Eat well”. When the child reaches school age, taking him to school, his heart is filled with love, but also full of anxiety. The author recounts: When the child entered the gate, he stood and watched the child go alone until he was out of sight. He wondered: “Does my child know the way to class? What if someone other than the teacher takes him somewhere?”. I just kept thinking about it and then I got worried …”.
