Gérard de Nerval (1808-1855) – Gothic Song

1920s-fruits-and-flowers

Beautiful spouse

I love your tears!

They’re the dew

Befitting flowers.

*

Beautiful things

Have but one spring

With roses let’s sow

Time’s footprints!

*

Blonde or brunette

Must we select?

Pleasure is

The god of this world.
