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!

Dans la plaine blonde et sous les allées

Language: French (Français)

Dans la plaine blonde et sous les allées,
Pour mieux faire accueil au doux messidor,
Nous irons chasser les choses ailées,
Moi, la strophe, et toi, le papillon d'or.

Et nous choisirons les routes tentantes,
Sous les saules gris et près des roseaux,
Pour mieux écouter les choses chantantes ;
Moi, le rythme, et toi, le chœur des oiseaux.

Suivant tous les deux les rives charmées,
Que le fleuve bat de ses flots parleurs,
Nous vous trouverons, choses parfumées,
Moi, glanant des vers, toi cueillant des fleurs.

Et l'amour, servant notre fantaisie,
Fera, ce jour-là l'été plus charmant,
Je serai poète, et toi poésie;
Tu seras plus belle, et moi plus aimant.
