Burine, Claude de: Greet You (Te saluer in English)

Portre of Burine, Claude de

Te saluer (French)

Te saluer

Comme on lance un bouquet d’oeillets


Sur des dalles fraîches.


Prononcer ton nom

Comme on allume un feu

Dans une rue déserte.


Te toucher

Comme on touche le pain

Quand lui seul fait vivre.

Greet You (English)

Greet you

The way carnations are thrown

In summer

On keen slabs.


Name you

The way a fire is lit

In an empty street.


Touch you

The way bread is touched

When it alone brings life.
