Jean Cocteau

(5 July 1889 – 11 October 1963 / Maisons-Laffitte, Yvelines)

Sobre Las Olas (On The Waves)


The boys in striped knitware

Everything coos and the bathing girl
consults the mirror of the skies

As a rosebush swells its sides
Once more on the merry-go-round
Spring at the bottom of the sea.
