Automne secret


Tu m'avais dit

Je serai de retour

A l'aube



Tu devais me délivrer

De mes soucis

Et donner du sang

Aux arbres



C'est l'automne

A présent le soleil ondoie

Et la rue s'anime d'unijambistes

Et de survivants



Les commerçants vendent

Et les enfants réclament

Je t'attends L'automne

Garde ses secrets



(English translation by Nicolas Fleurot -

Traduction en anglais par Nicolas Fleurot) :



Secret Autumn





You said

You'll be back

At dawn



You had to free me

From my worries

And give blood

To the trees



It's the autumn now

The sun undulates

And the streets come alive



Full of one-legged survivors



Traders sell

And children reclaim

I am waiting

The autumn

Keeps its secrets.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
