Enfants perdus

to Idir

Ten songs of rain
like ten burning stems
of incense.

Nine stones of grave
like nine swallows eaten
by Lethe.

Five blooming suns
like a five finger hand
implanting.

Three broken blades
of three untainted lands,
reclining.

One low-pitched note
for the forlorn hope
now diving.

Romanian version

inspired by the song “Les larmes de leurs pères” – Idir & Patrick Bruel
