– The words “light”, “light”, “dew”: The moonlight in the night is very bright and virtual, shining down and looking at the ground is covered with a misty mist.

– The word “sieve” (bed): Helps readers recognize the poet’s moon-watching position. The moonlight through the crack of the door, shining on the head of the bed, proved that the moon was very bright at night and it was already late at night. But at this time, the poet is still awake to look at the moon – proving the poet’s restless and troubled mood.

I. Practice

Topic: Expressing feelings about one of the poems: Feelings in a quiet night, Randomly writing on the occasion of returning home, Late night scene, Full moon of January

Suggestions:

Ly Bach is considered as “fairy poetry”. His poetry often expresses a free and generous soul. Images in poetry are often bright and magnificent, with natural but skillful language. Feeling in the quiet night is one of his beautiful poems:

“Prepare for the dawn of the moon,
Suspicion of the upper land dew.
The first gesture of the moon,
To invest in the homeland”

The poem can be divided into two parts. The first part depicts the beauty of moonlight. The poet has skillfully used the words “minh”, “light”, “dew” to describe the moonlight in the night which is very bright and virtual, shining down and looking at the ground covered with a misty mist. Combined with that is the word indicating position – “sieve” (bed) to clearly state the poet’s position to watch the moon. The bright moonlight shone on the bed, it was late at night, but Li Bai was still awake. The mood that is revealed is the restlessness that makes the poet unable to sleep. The moonlight shines down on everything in the dim night, making it impossible for the poet to distinguish between the moon and the night mist. We see that under the eyes of the poet, the moonlight now appears with a dim appearance. That makes us imagine the image of Li Bai while looking at the moon while drinking.

Next, the second part describes the poet’s mood. The use of the word “hope” can be understood as looking into the distance to see the moon or looking forward to the homeland in the distance. The next verse, Ly Bach, has built two opposing images: “head gesture” – “head dike” (lifting head – bowing) to help the verse become rhythmic. With the act of “lifting the head”, we can see the direction towards the moonlight that is shining all over the earth, the poet’s homeland. With the act of “bowing”, we can see that the poet is looking inside himself – facing the longing for his homeland. Reading these two verses, the reader understands the poet’s love.

Thus, Feeling in the Quiet Night has shown readers the love of the homeland and the longing nostalgia of a person living far away from the countryside in the quiet moonlit night.
