I sing to myself, a song to the sea

Truth BeTold

/I sing to you my dear, a song for the sea

...a song for the sea

/ I sing to you my sea, an ode just for me ode just for me

/ I sing to you belov’d, a hymned melody

...a hymned melody

/ sing to you mon amie

la poesie infinie, la poesie de ma vie

A figment ducks and dives
Washed-up crest laid-bare of the shore
Then I saw your face, emerald
Light glancing into the depths

Un mirroir de moi-même
qui s’èvade dans la fuméeè maritime interceptant les
couleurs lunaires d’un soleil vieillissant

Les tourbillons nuageux me noient dans tes courants
me rapellant a chaque instant l’ivresse de ton vert/verre

The memory of your face, sweet olivine
An imprint on my mind
An eddy praying for my fingers, To dance through his trails

Ta calme noirceur vide de sens
mais au loin au creux de tes pierres

Painted there your face, jade
A shaded reality, veiled
A gradient whisper to the unknown tale
