☆ Illustration of the Poem [ Artist ] Beth Nicholas – « Solitude »
I Saw the Winter
What did you see, tell me?
A cry evaporated in the clouds!
A tree losing its foliage green!
What did you do, tell me?
What about your prayers towards Heavens
For her tears in the night throwing the fright?
I saw the winter the lids of his eyes
Whiten the corner of her mouth
Whence have sprung the thunderstorm and fever.
I put my hand on her icy skin,
I caught fine frostbite of his mouth crumpled
Then I leaned my head seeking her neck
For a remember her of which I’m crazy.
