Friday flowers and a poem...

{photo and poem from here}


2 Jonquilles
Le pré aux jonquilles


Mes yeux jouent aux quilles
Dans le pré aux jonquilles
Les femmes portent leur beauté
Comme des bouquets parfumés

Il y a dans l'air un baiser
à peine osé, à peine posé
Qui fait sur les lèvres fleurir
Les boutonnières du sourire

Le printemps est revenu
Et dans le jardin des nues
Les anges en robe blanche
Cueillent les fleurs du silence

Tout semble si paisible
Que la mort impassible
Me croise sans me heurter
Et discrètement marche à mes côtés

Françoise URBAN-MENNINGER

2 Daffodils
The meadow daffodils

My eyes are playing bowling
In the meadow with daffodils
Women wear their beauty
As fragrant bouquets

There was a kiss in the air
hardly dared hardly posed
Who's on the lips bloom
Buttonholes smile

Spring has returned
And in the garden naked
The angels in white dress
Pluck the flowers of silence

Everything seems so peaceful
Impassive as death
Cross my face without me
And quietly walk beside me
