This is a poem I had read in 1985 and enjoyed so much the style and its brilliancy, that I wrote it down. Today, I want to share it with my faithful readers 🙂

Speed
—–

Speed is synonymous with drunkenness
Stupidity is synonymous with weakness
Life is synonymous with tenderness
Death is synonymous with wisdom
—————
If speed and stupidity become one
Life and death form a whole
—————
For drunkenness is a weakness
And tenderness is a wisdom

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )

Vitesse
——-

La vitesse est synonyme d’ivresse
La bêtise est synonyme de faiblesse
La vie est synonyme de tendresse
La mort est synonyme de sagesse
—————–
Si la vitesse et la bêtise ne font qu’un
La vie et la mort forment un tout
—————–
Car l’ivresse est une faiblesse
Et la tendresse une sagesse

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )
