“ La Joie ”

         – imaginée –

La Joie réelle

Atteinte,

Je n’en croyais

De mon vécu,

N’était qu’un rêve,

Perçu toutefois

Comme de la soie,

Quoique doublé

D’une vie ridée,

Même si parfois

Brodé de roses,

Semblait une joie

Sans cause

Que l’on s’impose…

                                                                                                                            

Et pour cette joie

Affaire imaginaire,

De rêves déserts,                              

D’une vie non façonnée

Qu’incite à découvrir

Une joie faussée

Quand même remplie de vie

Et de beauté non inventée,

Une joie d’un amour éprouvé!

                               A la recherche d’un souvenir de jeune homme!

  1. You’re telling me this brings back memories of living in California in the early 80s, when a friend one day told me she often phoned just to listen to the french version of my bilingual answering machine message, thus because she enjoyed the sound. She had a good sense of humour, so I teased her about this, by suggesting doing so was another way of finding culture, other than in yogurt or wearing socks. Like I said she had a sense of humour.
    Now, nonsense aside, you’re listening has me both flattered and intrigued, as well as wondering.
    Does this have something to do with you’re being a teacher, or the motivation of learning French, as is Rebecca learning french?
    I really do appreciate your interest!, Liz!
