I like using poetry for writing, and not always have to write my own, so part of this project should be about collecting pieces even if I don’t know how I will use it.
This one is by Victor Hugo, he of Les Miserable and Hunchback of Notre Dame fame. It’s called “June Nights” and it’s June, and the nights have been full of termites, so I want to collect this different look at June
In summer, when day has fled, the plain covered with flowers
Pours out far away an intoxicating scent;
Eyes shut, ears half open to noises,
We only half sleep in a transparent slumber.
The stars are purer, the shade seems pleasanter;
A hazy half-day coulours the eternal dome;
And the sweet pale dawn awaiting her hour
Seems to wander all night at the botom of the sky.
