Monday poetry train - Étoile/Star

Ce soir, sous mes yeux/Tonight, under my eyes
Se trouve la voute étoilée/ Is the starry vault
Le ciel d'une telle clarté/ This sky so bright
Ces milles diamants/Of this thousand diamonds
Attachés au firmament/ Attached to the firmament
Qui peuvent/That could
À chaque instant /At each moment
Tomber/Fall
Venir caresser/ And come carress
Nos rêves/ Our dreams
Mais pourquoi/ But why
Certains s'acharnent/ Some try desperately
À payer des millions/ To pay millions
Pour avoir/ To have
Ce que je vis / What I lived
En ce moment/ in this very moment
Mais rien n'égalera/ But nothing can egual
La douceur/ The softness
De cette nuit étoilée/ Of this starry night

    'Certains s'acharnent/ Some try desperately
    À payer des millions/ To pay millions
    Pour avoir/ To have
    Ce que je vis / What I lived
    En ce moment/ in this very moment'

    My favorite lines! This is where the poem turns into the feel-good poem.

    ooh, this brings back childhood for me. it's been that long since i've seen a night sky that swarmed with 'diamonds'. my night blindness began in my teens. i can still see the moon. and some of the brightest of the bright stars/planets if city lights are not too overpowering and if i stare at the blackness for ten to fifteen minutes. but i can literally count the stars i'm able to see and i know that is not reflective of reality.

    but oooh, i remember the thrill of laying flat on my back on soft grass and staring up into that swarm of lights. i knew nothing of jewels then. i didn't see them as object that could fall into my hands but rather as places to go. the lit windows of heaven's mansions or the eyes of angels.

    yes i was very small

    thank you for eliciting that mood and memory for me.

    I paid $1.75 at the corner store.
    Made in China it was.

    Great imagery Jill - as usual!
