Aprés La Guerre Poem by Jacques du Lumerie


All I ever yearned for
Was this silence
These hours of noiselessness
But for the hum of my dreaming.
Being at once
Quiet and at peace.
All I ever wanted
Was this silence.

Hearing no birds singing,
No children laughing,
No motors roaring:


So lonely I have become
Will somebody
Please make me a noise?
