Devant une fleur de tillandsia (en anglais)


Before A Tillandsia Flower
For Antoine Chedeville

« Olhe que a gente começa
Às vezes por brincadeira… »

(‘Look, we sometimes
Begin as a joke…’)

João de Deus (1830-1896)

You spoke of Kant, of Homer and the rhapsodists,
Blue, your passionate voice flowed into my mind
Like a dawn gentler than the soul of aquilegias
And slowly my soul was transformed into an ode!

Translated from the French of Athanase Vantchev de Thracy
