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!

Par les soirs

Language: French (Français)

Vaguement et long temps aux mauves crepuscules,
Nous irons conquérir des mondes fabuleux,
Lorsqu'un peu d'infini ver l'horizon recule,
Lorsque le ciel profond est moins bleu que tes yeux.
Il semble que le soir par teintes incertaines,
Reflète la splendeur magnifique des mers.
Les vagues du soleil comme un triomphe clair
Ont l'air de conquérir les étendues lointaines.
Les mains unies, le coeur pensif en écoutant
Mourir la terre au fond des bois et près des villes,
Nous sentirons en nous une aurore tranquille,
Etinceler parmi les fêtes du couchant
Et la mélancolie entr'ouvrira ses voiles,
Pour cueillir et bercer nos deux amours en fleurs,
Si bien qu'à la douceur de la première étoile,
Nous serons deux enfants n'ayant qu'un même coeur!
