Tu ne sauras jamais à quel point je t'envie, Morphée

Car tu es le seul être qui puisse comprendre à quoi cette dormeuse pense

Quand elle s'allonge sur cette mer blanche, les yeux fermés au monde

 

Ce que je donnerais pas pour être en paix avec elle dans son royaume des rêves 

De voir son sourire maintes fois caché pendant sa vie de veille

Sous son armure aussi impénétrable qu'invisible

 

Réponds-moi, O belle songeuse

Le monde est-il si cruel que tu ne peux pas me confier

Les secrets de ton cœur timoré?

 

Peut-être un jour, serai-je digne de tes égards

Et tu me connaitras pour de vrai

En attendant, ton sourire somnolent me suffira

 
 
Ceci est mon premier poème écrit en français depuis le lycée. J'ai été inspiré par la beauté de ce dessin par :iconsombrefeline:

fav.me/d6cu5ov ainsi que par cette photo de mon amie/observatrice, :iconkathrynodriscoll:

fav.me/d6dnhyu

Je ne suis pas sur si j'ai bien fait, alors je serai tellement reconaissant si vous pouvez donner vos pensées, si je peux améliorer mon travail.

Merci en avance pour vos commentaires.
______________________________________________________________

To my Anglophone watchers, the translated version can be found here: Beautiful DreamerYou will never know how I envy you, Morpheus
For you are the only being that can understand what this beautiful sleeper thinks of
As she lays on that white sea, eyes shut to the world. 
What I would give to be at peace with her in her realm of dreams
To see her smile oft hidden in her waking life
Under her armour as impenetrable as it is invisible.
Answer me, O beautiful dreamer
Is the world so cruel that you cannot confide in me
The secrets of your fearful heart? 
Perhaps one day, I will be worthy of your consideration
And you will know me for real
Until then, your somnolent smile will suffice.

It has a touch of symbolism about it, which I like. It reminds me of Jean Delville's painting Orphée mort  although it doesn't talk about this at all. The image simply popped in my head when I read it.

I'm happy to hear that. I admit that symbolism is a big influence on my work, poetry or otherwise.

Wow, that's really cool! I had a look at the painting and I liked it.

Good to hear that. I wondered if that was a sign of immaturity, writing wise. The fact that I can't seem to move past symbolism and abstract ideas represented by objects.

I think I may do that :aww:

Immaturity? I don't think so. Of course it may depend how you work with it, but from what I've read from you, no immaturity.

Cet oeuvre me rapelle un peu de la mythologie grecque. Je pouvais vraiment voir Morphée comme il courtise la belle songeuse :)

En fait, c'est pas vraiment Morphée qui chante des louanges a la belle songeuse mais le narrateur. Mais je suis heureux d'entendre que tu as aimé le poème tout de même. 

D'ailleurs, j’espère que ça ne vous dérange pas si je vous tutoie?
