The essence of debates confounded in the blur

The essence of debates confounded in the blur

(Translation of a poem written in Alexandrin verse in Occitan sonnet form. See original here or here)

10 March 2017

 

The past experiences upon a trestle lay

Where the memory draws all the curves of summer

From the forgotten springs by the hearts which dispose

Waves of love through Ondine who welds the beheaded

 

The erased memories emerge from gloomy times

Where the serpentine wave closes repeated trails

In the frozen deserts where misfortunes unfold

When fairy Melusine in iron chains was thrown

 

Now open wide your ears guide right the weary hearts

Upcoming are battles of which you know nothing

Forgotten the old sleep dominated criss-cross

 

We will live happiness in ultimate meetings

Within vermilion hearts bordering on lilac

The essence of debates confounded in the blur
