Roses ardentes

Language: French (Français)

  Roses ardentes
Dans l'immobile nuit,
C'est en vous que je chante
  Et que je suis.

En vous, étincelles
A la cime des bois,
Que je suis éternelle
  Et que je vois.

  Ô mer profonde,
C'est en toi que mon sang
Renaît vague blonde,
  En flot dansant.

Et c'est en toi, force suprême,
  Soleil radieux,
Que mon âme elle-même
  Atteint son dieu!

Fiery roses

Language: English after the French (Français)

 Fiery roses
 in the still night,
 in you I am singing,
 in you I exist.
 at the tips of the forest,
 in you I am eternal,
 in you I can see.
 Deep ocean, in you
 my blood is reborn
 as a white-capped wave,
 as a dancing tide.
 And in you, supreme force,
 radiant sun,
 my very soul
 reaches its God!
