“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.”
“I am nothing but a sigh rising from the earth.”
“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.”
Cécile Sauvage, French poet, writer
(1883 - 1927)
