distant communication


This poem was written in 1987 after I had received the phone call of one of my very close siblings.
The happiness of hearing his voice was such, that those words just, burst forth as a result.

I am going to put the English translation straight in. I hope you will enjoy it.

Distant communication

A phone rings
And the sun shines
In my head resonates
A ” hello ” that chimes

Messenger of life
That sometimes smiles
Messenger of the subsistence
Of the ” bread ” you have baked

The sun of an instant
The phone of a moment
But, still in my head resonates
A ” hello ” that chimes


Contact lointain

Un téléphone sonne
Et le soleil rayonne
Dans ma tête où résonne
Un ” Allô ” qui carillonne

Messager de la vie
Qui parfois te sourit
Messager de la mie
Du pain que tu as cuit

Le soleil d’un instant
Le téléphone d’un moment
Mais dans ma tête toujours résonne
Un ” Allô ” qui carillonne

Have a beautiful day!

  1. Lovely poem and I appreciate the English translation. I am learning French and I love poetry, so it is a perfect pairing. Thank you, also, for visiting my site and for liking all the articles. Also for the following. I have returned the complement, as I don’t want to miss any of your articles. Some of them will need more time to read than I have today, but I will return. Thank you. It’s lovely to connect in this way. Blessings from Lizzie Joy
