Symphosius
 
Lampada tradam
(“I deliver the torch”)
 
Afternoon, beautiful as
The cooing of the turtledoves,
I’m getting bored under
The caresses of freshness.
 
Abundant Beautiful-of-day
Adorn the air
And make heavenly
The little garden.
 
They don’t want to sleep
At this time.
 
Over me above me
The Red fruits of the hawthorn
Glow gracefully
In the darkness of the wall
Running around the house.
 
A solar silence
Hold the world in its embrace!
 
By sleep me
I’m thinking about the famous collection
Of Latin riddles aenigmata
The Caelius Firmianus Symphosius!
 
And I dream, pressed against the ochre wall
At that prodigious time where anguish
Got a captivating word!
 
My God, what a job,
What a lot of white nights!
Would I have been able to do so much effort?

The Cormier
 
The sweet voice of the wind
Mixes with the sounds of my poems.
My words that smell honey
Fall like snowflakes
On the white of the leaf.
 
Under The Elegant Cormier,
The fragile thought marry the grace of poetry.
My Angel, are holy
The children of the saints,
Saints like the bread of the fields.
 
Walking in the golden alleys,
I hunt sorrow and sadness.
My tears wash carefully
The dust of the day.
 
I hear the silence
From the source in fallow
Where, captivating looks,
Grow Solar Ranunculus.
 
And There, at the end of the garden,
You smile my angel,
You in dress of sky and water,
Beautiful like the virgin déipare.
 
What a beauty, what a blessing,
That air full
From the nostalgia of Autumn,
That sky that adds again
A little bliss
At the bare gardens
And deeply tired alleys. .
 
Thank you, my God,
To be two!
 
Thank you!
