Cécile Sauvage

  • Melancholy floats over the earth on birds' wings / The wind carries it over the sad waters / And the bitter plains.

  • Slowly, I exile myself and leave my body / My forehead is unfamiliar to me and I am afraid of my hand.

  • Go, my soul, walk the night among the trees / No one will listen to your voice more carefully / than silence and nature / No one will cry better over you / Than the murmuring foliage / And the tears of the storm / Forming drops of water on the branches of wood.
