|Beginning in 1947, until his death, Ho composed an annual poem for the |
Vietnamese people on the occasion of Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year.
He composed the following poem for the lunar New Year of 1948;
The Year of the Pig has passed on,
The Year of the Rat steps forward.
I send greetings to my fellow countrymen,
Our resistance will achieve victory;
Our people together in great unity,
Our country together in one heart;
United, we will surely win,
Independence determines success.
