Tomorrow at dawn


death

Tomorrow, at dawn
Tomorrow, at dawn, at the hour when the countryside whitens,
I will depart. You see, I know you wait for me.
I will go through the forest and over the mountains.

I cannot stay far from you any longer.
I will trudge on, my eyes fixed on my thoughts,

Ignoring everything around me, without hearing a sound,

Alone, unknown, back stooped, hands crossed,

Saddened, and the day will be like night for me.
I will neither see the golden glow of the falling evening,

Nor the sails going down to Harfleur in the distance,

And when I arrive, I will place on
your tomb

A bouquet of green holly and flowering heather.

-VICTOR HUGO-
