Mon Âme, Il Faut Partir

Mon âme, il faut partir.Ma vigueur est passée,
Mon dernier jour est dessus l'horizon.
Tu crains ta liberté.Quoi! n'es-tu pas lassée
D'avoir souffert soixante ans de prison?

Tes désordres sont grands; tes vertus sont petites;
Parmi tes maux on trouve peu de bien;
Mais si le bon Jésus te donne ses mérites,
Espère tout et n'appréhende rien.

Mon âme, repens-toi d'avoir aimé le monde,
Et de mes yeux fais la source d'une onde
Qui touche de pitié le monarque des rois.

Que tu serais courageuse et ravie
Si j'avais soupiré, durant toute ma vie,
Dans le désert, sous l'ombre de la Croix!

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
