_Tình Khúc Thứ Nhất _N/s Vũ Thành An 

Thơ: Nguyễn Đình Toàn 

Tình vui theo gió mây trôi
Ý sầu mưa xuống đời
Lệ rơi lấp mấy tuổi tôi
Mấy tuổi xa người
Ngày thần tiên em bước lên ngôi
Đã nghe son vàng tả tơi
Trầm mình trong hương đốt hơi bay
Mong tìm ra phút sum vầy 

Có biết đâu niềm vui đã nằm trong thiên tai
Những cánh dơi lẻ loi mù trong bóng đêm dài
Lời nào em không nói em ơi
Tình nào không gian dối
Xin yêu nhau như thời gian làm giông bão mê say 

Lá thốt lên lời cây
Gió lú đưa đường mây
Có yêu nhau xin ngày thơ ngây
Lúc mắt chưa nhạt phai
Lúc tóc chưa đổi thay
Lúc môi chưa biết dối cho lời 

Tình vui trong phút giây thôi
Ý sầu nuôi suốt đời
Thì xin giữ lấy niềm tin dẫu mộng không đền
Dù trời đem cay đắng gieo thêm
Cũng xin đón chờ bình yên
Vì còn đây câu nói yêu em
Âm thầm soi lối vui tìm đến 

Thần tiên gẫy cánh đêm xuân
Bước lạc sa xuống trần
Thành tình nhân đứng giữa trời không
Khóc mộng thiên đường
Ngày về quê xa lắc lê thê
Trót nghe theo lời u mê
Làm tình yêu nuôi cánh bay đi
Nhưng còn dăm phút vui trần thế

Tà Áo Đêm Noel

Tác giả: Tuấn Lê

Tiền đồn biên giới heo hút trong màn tối,
Vài đóm hỏa châu le lói soi cuối trờị
Trầm trầm chuông ngân đây nghe buồn tênh,
Ánh sao hiền lấp lánh báo tin lành Chúa sinh.
Kỷ niệm năm ấy trong phút giây chợt đến.
Tà áo màu xanh tha thướt đi lễ đêm.
Nàng quì bên me đôi mắt nhung huyền xinh chấp tay nguyện Kinh thánh
thầm mơ tôi ước se mộng lành.
Tôi đã được yêu,
E mình còn xa cách lối;
Đạo, đời ngăn đôi đứa đôi nơi,
Nhưng mà tôi tin có Chúa Trờị
Tôi đi, đi vì chiến cuộc quê hương,
Áo học sinh nhuốm bụi đường,
Nhớ hoài người tôi đã thương,
Từ miền khu chiến trông ánh sao mà nhớ !
Tà áo màu xanh năm ấy em vẫn chờ ?
Một mùa Noel hai đứa nghe niềm vui,
Hát chung một ca khúc :
”Đêm đông lạnh lẽo Chúa sinh ra đời!

Katyusha

(Russian Fold Song)

Pears and apples blossomed on their branches.
Mist (was) creeping on the river.
Katyusha set out on the banks,
On the steep and lofty bank.

She was walking, singing a song
About a grey steppe eagle,
About her true love,
Whose letters she was keeping.

Oh you song! Little song of a maiden,
Head for the bright sun.
And reach for the soldier on the far-away border
Along with greetings from Katyusha.

Let him remember an ordinary girl,
And hear how she sings,
Let him preserve the Motherland,
Same as Katyusha preserves their love.

(Katyusha was also used to name Russian’s famous rockets BM8, BM13, and BM31)

 Biography

Lyudmila Mikhailovna Pavlichenko was born in the small Ukrainian village of Belaya Tserkov. After completing 9 years of schooling, she moved to Kiev, Ukraine with her parents. At age 14, she joined a shooting club in Kiev and learned how to use a rifle.

When Germany invaded Russia in Jun 1941, she placed her university education on hold and joined the Russian Army. The recruiter insisted on signing her up as a nurse, but she refused, asking to be given a position in the infantry. The recruiter laughed even when she produced her marksmanship certificate, but gave in to her demands, allowing her to become one of 2,000 Soviet women who fought in the war as snipers. As a member of the Russian 25th Infantry Division, she fought the German forces near Odessa, Ukraine, where she recorde d her first two kills.

 Over the next two and half years, she killed 187 Germans with her Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle. Upon the fall of Odessa to the Germans, she was transferred to Sevastopol in southern Ukraine, where in May 1942 Southern Red Army Council gave her credit for killing 257 Germans. Her score reached 309 before the war ended for her after being wounded by mortar fire in Jun 1942. Realizing she could be used for propaganda, the Russians sent her to tour Canada and the United States.

She became the first Soviet citizen to be a guest of the White House. The Americans gave her a Colt semi-automatic pistol, while the Canadians presented her with a Winchester rifle. Upon her return to Europe, she was given the rank of major and became a sniper instructor. In 1943 she was awarded the Gold Star of the Hero of the Soviet Union.

After the war, Pavlichenko completed her education at Kiev University and became a historian attached to the headquarters of the Soviet Navy. Subsequently, she also served as a member of the Soviet Committee of the Veterans of War. She passed away at the age of 58 and now rests in peace in the Novodevichye Cemetery in Moscow, Russia.

Scarborough Fair

Are you goin’ to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Remember me to one who lives there,

she once was a true love of mine.

 

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt.

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Without no seams nor needle work.

Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

 

Tell her to find me an acre of land .

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Between salt water and the sea strands.

Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

 

Tell her to reap it in a sickle of leather.

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

And gather it all in a bunch of heather.

Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

 

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme.

Remember me to one who lives there,

she once was a true love of mine
