Retrouve dans les tanières le vieux lion affaibli

Sans passé sans demain source tarie exposer

Reléguer les rivières aux bons soins de l’oubli

Les clés du lendemain dans âme entreposer

 

Vois-le reprendre matière de substance anobli

Ambre et myrrhe sur jasmin un tapis déposer

Elaguer les clairières bois de teinte rétabli

Se frayer un chemin dans nos cœurs reposer

 

Dessine-moi un agneau vaquant libre en demeure

Cloître froideur de domaine où les bons cœurs pourrissent

Remets-moi mon anneau d’avant que je ne meure

 

Les loups recouvrent la plaine de nos corps se nourrissent

Ravive-moi le flambeau tendu à la vaine heure

Préserve mon Aquitaine des complots qu’ils ourdissent

Find hidden in the dens the old lion weakened

With no past no morrow dried shrunken source expose

Relegating rivers to care of oblivion

The keys of tomorrow within the soul dispose

 

See him resume matter of substance ennobled

Amber and myrrh on jasmine a carpet depose

Prune the trees in clearings wood in hue established

Plowing hard a pathway into our hearts repose

 

Draw me a little lamb running free in the shed

Cloister cold of domain where good hearts are rotting

Relinquish to me ring from before I was dead

 

The wolves cover the plain make our bodies repair

Revive in me the torch stretched to vain time ticking

Preserve my Aquitaine from the plots they prepare

I seek art

Its twining effect

Wipes regret

White cloister

Inner beginnings bolster

I mingle with air

 

I am Time

Immemorial flow

Inner glow

Never blinds

The eye embraces all kinds

Of realms of glory

 

Wisdom speaks

But from open Heart

The mouth pale

Molded stale

Projections of shallow thoughts

Uttered unto lips

 

I hear Trees

Growing with new life

Beyond strife

End panic

The moves slow counter drastic

Measures of the spades

 

Within shades

The light grows silent

Slithering

Into sight

Fading past morrows delight

We walk on waters

 

Truth falters

On the brink of lies

Surging waves

Sweeping knaves

The kingdoms of past’s abyss

Their goal gone amiss
