From ancient times up to present, poetry has always been accompanying the people on the journey to build and protect the sacred Fatherland. The frontiers and the islands, for many artists, are always the source of endless inspiration for poetry composing. Poems about the Fatherland frontier today is not only the voices of poets; it has become a common feeling in the hearts of millions of Vietnamese as well”.
