Everything like in a beautiful painting
Oh you, magnificent finery,
One of these beaming jewels
Which remind me of your eyes so well,
I will never get tired
Of gazing at my beloved wife.
Like at my ear a soft whisper
Melody of some tunes,
The soft sound of your voice delights me,
You the delirious inspiration
Of my numerous creations,
My love claims to be limitless.
Like a dewdrop
Which reflects the iridescent wave,
You are the flame of my life,
The subtle perfume of my nights.
Thanks to you and your caresses,
My life rhymes with tenderness.
Poem written by Michel Hilger
