To make a detour for a flower!

To take time for a friend!

To be ready without fearing love!

O my beloved flower, I am speaking to you,

To your refuge I will come back,

To your eyelids I’ll whisper a message,

My gentleness will freshen you.

It will dig a grave around you

And, inside me, you will keep alive.

On a spring morning, I will find my place

And sleep beside your heart

Like a dreamy butterfly, dispensing my freshness

Over your life and your scented festoon,

I will savour the fruit of your body.

And the light in your eyes, I will seize.

From Exuberances (2015) – with illustrations by Micheline Masse.

Translated from French by the author.
