mignon

today i am feeling a bit homesick. i had a nice chat with An before the class started. It was freaking cold, but standing in the fresh air with a friend and sharing our thoughts about the future was nice. I thought how similar we are, humans, in our problems...


i don't have time to translate this, but let's hope the french is understandable...
mignon was my favorite character since my childhood years. i associated myself with her, and believed that it waited for me too, le pay ou fleurit l'orager....



Connais-tu le pays où fleurit l'oranger?
Le pays des fruits d'or et des roses merveilles,
Où la brise est plus douce et l'oiseau plus léger,
Où dans toute saison butinent les abeilles,
Où rayonne et sourit, comme un bienfait de Dieu,
Un éternel printemps sous un ciel toujours bleu!
Hélas! Que ne puis-je te suivre
Vers ce rivage heureux d'où le sort m'exila!
C'est là! C'est là que je voudrais vivre,
Aimer, aimer et mourir!
C'est là que je vou…
