“ The Book ”

         – of blank pages –

A book in search

Of giving birth,

To pages blank,

Free of dearth

Hopes but record,

View so composed

Of words in accord,

To author predisposed

Might ease the way,

That dares initiate

A scribe’s want say,

Without hesitate

When he finds a play,

Empty of intimidate

Upon a virgin page,

The while a book awaits

Words chosen to breathe life,

To the uninhabited posed state

Held be the book, of blank pages!

 Ma Bibliothèque

           – des anciens scribes

                         aux modernes –

 

J’ai une bibliothèque

Qui déborde

De livres

Que j’ai lus,

Et d’autres

Se répandent

En histoires

Sommeillant,

Au creux de l’âme,

Pour des yeux las

Avides de vivre

Pour ainsi lire,

Avant de périr…

 

J’ai des livres

Dans les veines,

Me tourmentent,

En peine

D’être écrits

Au lieu de poèmes

Qui me saignent,

Et imprègnent

Les pages vierges

De maints recueils,

A dire vrai

De naissance

Au dernier ancrage,

La destinée finale!

 

                           ôde en quelque sorte, aux bibliothèques…

“ The Book ” ~ of blank pages ~

A book in search

Of giving birth

To pages blank,

Hopes but record

Views so composed,

With words’ accord

To author predisposed,

Might ease the way

That dare initiate

A scribe’s want say,

Upon a virgin page

Empty so, intimidates

The while a book awaits

Words chose breathe life,

To uninhabited blank pages!
