At the talk show, Nguyen Duy told about his childhood through poems written when he was a student:

"Đứa chơi đáo đứa nhảy vòng
tôi không chơi đáo vì không có tiền

Có tiền tôi cũng không chơi
vì tôi không muốn bạn tôi mất tiền

Tung tăng tôi ngắm tôi nhìn
con sông có bóng con thuyền thả câu”.

Nguyen Duy's oldest poems are also more than 60 years old, one of the famous poems about wartime images and aspirations that won the prize was: "Vietnamese bamboo". The poem was also the start for Nguyen Duy's poetic career.
