LXIV



Mesure : 6/8



/ Intro /

On the slope of the creek, I asked her :
"Where are you going hiding your flashlight with your coat ?
'Cause my house is all dark and empty", I said
"Lend me your light !"
She raised her dark eyes for a moment
And looked at my face in the dusk
"I have come to the creek" she said "to shine my light
On the animals in the water when it gets dark"

It got darker, and I asked again
If she would bring her light to my house
As there were no animals in the water
There was nothing living moving
She said "I'm going to shine it on the sky ;
Eventually it will reach a star"
And I watched her shine the light
Uselessly into the sky

In the moonless gloom of midnight I asked her
Why she still held the light so close to her chest
"My house is all dark and empty" I said
"Lend me that light"
"I need it to walk home with" she said
"I can't see in the dark like a cat"
I watched her light get lost among the trees
And into the lights of houses
