Fille sauvage

manon4You reached the river

as your hair dragged you beneath

a weight within water within echo

your thimble wrists and slender elbows

unable to resist the lure

water witch they said

girl of the mountain

purple sage

perhaps an angel

or a magi lost in olive groves

your cheeks are reddened by my regard

I wake thinking of how your body

looks in setting sun with the fine heat

behind you like a wild shadow

dancing on sombaro

you are the kind of woman few would dare to pursue

it is not your nature to stay long

in the lisping skip of your tenderness

you leave us longing without knowing

we do

dis-moi fille sauvage

de quoi donc as-tu si peur?

la vie n’est pas un mirage

nous avons tous un coeur

(last four lines Richard Anthony / Fille Sauvage)

      1. Malheureusement c’était surtout l’illusion chère Candice. Il a été trop long depuis que j’ai étudié le français donc j’ai eu beaucoup d’aide de Google translate. Mais c’était amusant de voir ce que je voulais dire dans la langue que j’ai toujours tant aimée. Je t’aime, Natalie 🙂 ❤

      2. Are you kidding? You did GREAT! The truth is … without constant use any language is hard to write (easier to understand) because it’s like anything you forget. People say you cannot forget your ‘native’ language but that’s not true, you can forget anything you don’t use. I admire you for using yours! I was horrible at languages I could never master Spanish or German (though the latter was not such a loss) and I spell awfully in those I can speak! 🙂
