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 17, we are $5,700 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 to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Au jardin des rêves

Language: French (Français)

Dans le jardin fleuri des rêves
J'ai mené quand j'étais enfant
Mon espoir frais et triomphant.
Mais où sont les lointaines grèves
Du beau jardin fleuri de rêve?

Plus tard dans le jardin des rêves
J'ai conduit mon amour naissant,
Mon tendre amour d'adolescent.
Que les heures douce sont brèves
Dans le jardin fleur des rêves...

Et voici qu'au jardin des rêves
Que la vie, hélas, saccagea,
Triste et seul je mène, déjà,
Mês regrets qui pleurent sans trèves
La mort du beau jardin des rêves.
