Les sentiers d’or ouverts ramènent Reine de faucille / The open trails of gold bring back Queen of the sickle

Les sentiers d’or ouverts ramènent Reine de faucille

La voix qui m’animait s’exprime en lèvres lasses

Perséphone entendue émerge en mon printemps

La terre qui l’abritait de blancheur lors s’efface

Perce-neige étendue fut vivante en son temps

 

La houle qui secouait calme blanc laisse des traces

Les ferveurs prétendues ne durent jamais longtemps

L’absent qu’on désirait de la mémoire trépasse

Les attentes trop tendues rembobinent contretemps

 

Chacun mange à son plat bannis les métissages

Fort picassent les piverts les pies cherchent ce qui brille

Nous jouerons encore là comme des enfants sauvages

 

Au milieu des prés verts où les jonquilles scintillent

Le cœur hors répit las se fera nouvel âge

Les sentiers d’or ouverts ramènent Reine de faucille

The voice that animated me speaks through weary lips

Persephone heard emerges within my spring

The land that sheltered her in whiteness now disappears

Snowdrop lying extended used to be alive in those days

 

The swell that was shaking dead calm leaves traces

The alleged fervors never last long

The absent once desired from memory fades away

The constricting expectations rewind mishaps

 

Each eats with his own kind, banished the interbreeding

Loud cry the woodpeckers, the magpies seek all that glitters

We’ll play there again like wild children

 

In the middle of green fields where daffodils sparkle

The heart out of respite, tired, will find a renewed age

The open trails of gold bring back Queen of the sickle
