Monday Poetry Train - Soul

I will not take any soul captive /Je ne tiendrai aucune âme prisionnière
Because a soul must be free /Car une âme doit être libre
Free will must be its burden / Son fardeau sera son libre arbitre
No chain must entrap it / Aucune chaîne doit l'emprissoner
Not even a kiss /Même pas un baiser
From gentle lips /De tendres lèvres

Some will say / Certains diront
That your lover should hold your heart/ Que ton amoureux doit être teneur de ton coeur
But since the heart/ Mais puisque le coeur
Is strongly connected to the soul/ Est extrêmement connecté à l'âme
Wouldn't that be/ Ne serais-ce
Keeping a piece of the soul captive/ Tenir une partie de l'âme captive

But then/ Mais
If a love can make the soul bloom/ Si l'amour peut permettre à l'âme de s'épanouir
No chain will keep that soul captive/ Aucune chaine ne pourra emprisonner cette âme
Even if I try/Même si j'essaie
To steal your heart/De voler ton coeur
I will not take any soul captive/Je ne tiendrai aucune âme captive

    This one is really nice, Jill. I agree with everything in it! I LOVE, love, love the first verse:
    'I will not take any soul captive /Je ne tiendrai aucune âme prisionnière
    Because a soul must be free /Car une âme doit être libre
    Free will must be its burden / Son fardeau sera son libre arbitre
    No chain must entrap it / Aucune chaîne doit l'emprissoner
    Not even a kiss /Même pas un baiser
    From gentle lips /De tendres lèvres'

    I've always considered the heart and soul to be separate. This poem gives me a glimpse of something unfamiliar. It's lovely. Thanks for sharing.

    Julia, we all need our space, even in love!

    Ann, I didn't see your post for the train this week!!

    Gautami, I guess it is all that Holiday spirit!

    Lakota, did I make you cry again?

    Missy, I always consider those two thing so close, it is weird to see you think the opposite!

    Ann...Ribs...

    Ah Jill, you have such a way with words, particularly romantic themes.
    i thought this was very touching:
    "Even if I try
    To steal your heart
    I will not take any soul captive"
    very true - and so often those we involve ourselves with want to hold us trapped, using love as chains.

    Loverly, just loverly.
