mathilda tree - Flowers and bank

from by Mathilda Tree



Composed by Anaïs Le Marchand / Gaëtan Davoult


I went down a little path to the river
I followed your lips
Bordered with aspens
And weeping willows

You were carrying crumpled dresses
Frail set & jewerly
Dresses slighter than clouds
Which wach over you

I saw your cool cloth
Spread on green sky
You were carrying
The golden pollen of sun

And I’ve looked your hair
As I gaze at the morning
Which get up

And your long fingers
Undid the stream’s plaits
Where dewdrop
As sleeping tears
Comes to rest

But grace clears
At the first breath
And dawn without a sound
Through the trees
As a shiver of candle
Lights up and draws

For the last time
Your wispy curves
But grace clears
At the first breath
And when autumn strides up
You wilt as frightened birds
