(1528 - 1577 / France)

Si tu veux que je meure...

Si tu veux que je meure entre tes bras, m'amie,
Trousse l'escarlatin de ton beau pellisson
Puis me baise et me presse et nous entrelassons
Comme, autour des ormeaux, le lierre se plie.

Dégraffe ce colet, m'amour, que je manie
De ton sein blanchissant le petit mont besson :
Puis me baise et me presse, et me tiens de façon
Que le plaisir commun nous enivre, ma vie.

L'un va cherchant la mort aux flancs d'une muraille
En escarmouche, en garde, en assaut, en bataille
Pour acheter un nom qu'on surnomme l'honneur.

Mais moy, je veux mourir sur tes lèvres, maîtresse,
C'est ma gloire, mon heur, mon trésor, ma richesse,
Car j'ai logé ma vie en ta bouche, mon coeur.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
