    La nuit silencieuse.

    Dans la nuit,
    silencieuse
    comme une
    feuille désolée,
    j'écoute le
    sourire qui vient
    tendrement en
    donnant la
    lumière.

    Como la nieve.
    ( last version )

    En observant l'infini
    et quand le souffle
    de la brise caresse
    mon visage en
    donnant le délassement
    par quasi brillare
    quel fascio di
    luce che mesto
    s'adagia ed incanta
    il creato: como
    la nieve que dulce
    regresa en el
    soplo del sol,
    como una rosa
    que canta y regala
    una triste armonía
    spreading a verse
    in the heart of
    the country...
