The Darkling Thrush

I leant upon a coppice gate
…..When Frost was spectre-gray,
And Winter’s dregs made desolate
…..The weakening eye of day.
The tangled bine-stems scored the sky
…..Like strings of broken lyres,
And all mankind that haunted nigh
…..Had sought their household fires.

The land’s sharp features seemed to be
…..The Century’s corpse outleant,
His crypt the cloudy canopy,
…..The wind his death-lament.
The ancient pulse of germ and birth
…..Was shrunken hard and dry,
And every spirit upon earth
…..Seemed fervorless as I.

At once a voice arose among
…..The bleak twigs overhead
In a full-hearted evensong
…..Of joy illimited;
An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small
…..In blast-beruffled plume,
Had chosen thus to fling his soul
…..Upon the growing gloom.

So little cause for carolings
…..Of such ecstatic sound
Was written on terrestrial things
…..Afar or nigh around,
That I could think there trembled through
…..His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew
…..And I was unaware.

31 December 1900

Je ne me souviens pas si je vous en avais parlé ou pas
j’oublie tout
je dois décorer
le pavillon Alzheimer de l’hôpital de Monaco
voici 4 des phrases que je vais mettre aux murs

– je voyage chaque jour

– oublier est art

– mais où est passé le chat

– si j’oublie c’est que ça n’en valait pas la peine

– les mots me font mal alors je les oublie

– j’aime oublier

– c’est vrai que j’ai oublié votre nom mais

c’est sans importance

– me rappeler de ma vie

Ben werkt aan een project voor de Alzheimer afdeling van de kliniek van Monaco.
