I Look for You

I look for you early,
my rock and my refuge,

  offering you worship

  morning and night;
before your vastness
I come confused

  and afraid, for you see

  the thoughts of my heart.

 
What could the heart

Quest of Harmony

Through mountains high and plains so vast,
A man embarked on a quest, uncertain and rast.

Amidst the peaks, where the air is thin,
He encountered a...

The cabin in the forest

In a realm untouched by the bustling world's way,
Nestled deep amidst the forest's sacred sway,

Where tranquility and whispering winds impart.

The cabin breathes, its timeworn walls alive,
With stories...

L'oiseau bleu

J’ai dans mon cœur un oiseau bleu,
Une charmante créature,
Si mignonne que sa ceinture
N’a pas l’épaisseur d’un cheveu

Il lui faut du sang pour pâture.
Bien longtemps, je me fis un jeu
De lui donner sa nourriture :
Les petits oiseaux...

À la forêt de Gastine

Couché sous tes ombrages verts,
Gastine, je te chante
Autant que les Grecs, par leurs vers
La forêt d'Érymanthe :

Car, malin, celer je ne puis
À la race future
De combien obligé je suis
À ta belle verdure,

Toi qui, sous l'abri de tes...

Hello, what exactly do you need?

This poignant poem vividly captures the tragic descent of a once-promising youth into the clutches of alcoholism. The carefully chosen words paint a powerful narrative of the destructive impact of addiction on both the individual and those who care about them. The use of nature's elements, like rain, skillfully mirrors the emotional turbulence and sorrow woven into the verses. The poem skillfully unfolds the narrative, evoking empathy and prompting reflection on the consequences of such choices. The tragic arc, from youthful promise to despair, is both heartrending and thought-provoking, leaving a lasting impression on the reader.
