You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

2. En Arles

Dans Arles, où sont les Aliscams,
Quand l'ombre est rouge, sous les roses,
Et clair le temps,

Prends garde à la douceur des choses. 
Lorsque tu sens battre sans cause
Ton coeur trop lourd ;

Et que se taisent les colombes :
Parle tout bas, si c'est d'amour,
Au bord des tombes.

3. Dans le jeune et frais cimetière

Dans le jeune et frais cimetière
Je suis assis sur une pierre.
Aux arbres s' apaise le bruit
Des oiseaux, car voici la nuit.
Sans vous envier ni vous plaindre,
Je regarde le jour s' éteindre
Sur les tertres de croix semés,
Ô pâles morts, où vous dormez.
