Clearly, I'm not so great at French, but I'm still learning!

Morte Belle

December 2, 2019

PROMPT: Two Tongues

French: Morte Belle (Beautiful Death)

Morte belle, étoile d'obscurité,
J'aime vous.
Comme l'oiseaux leur cage
Comme la dame sa chute
Et la fleur es l'hiver nuit
J'aime vous.

<<Mais, non oiseau n'aimes pas leur cage.>>

Beautiful death, star of darkness,
I love you.
Like the birds their cage
Like the lady her fall
And the flower its winter night
I love you.

"But, no bird loves its cage."
