Jacques du Lumerie


Ile a L'autre cote de l'eau


Your silver eyes
Has two faces with reflection

One is like autumn leaves
Or brown sepia photographs
And seem only to dull in death
And sadness of what once was...

The other eye sparkles
Dances magic with all the history of
Gaul bubbling out
And swims in warm southern beaches
Under a boiling smile.


Sometimes you close one eye,
Sometimes the other,
But never do you stare at me
Unblinking across this horizon
I have etched throughout my long years

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
