“I desired the fate of figureheads / Which leave port early and return late / I am jealous of the return and the departure / And of the wet corals tied about their throats. ... / Since, from the depths of danger, one returns more beautiful, / Returning with a face burning and fabled.”
Lucie Delarue-Mardrus, French poet, writer
(1880 - 1945)
