From day to night by iram From day to night by iram
"Every day I rise from sleep again
as if for the last time.
I donít know what awaits me,
perhaps it follows logically, then,
that nothing awaits me.
The spring on its way
is like the spring gone by.
I know about the month of May
but pay it no mind.
For me thereís no border between night and day,
just that night is colder
though silence is equal to them both.
At dawn I hear the voices of birds.
I fall asleep easily
out of affection for them.
The one who is dear to me is not here,
perhaps he simply is not.
I cross over from day to night
from day to day
like a feather
the bird doesnít feel as it falls away."

(D. Ravikovitch)

 It looks like a BissiŤre's work: "Winter" , may  be, or "November" As sad as fascinating. if I go through, shall I find the Light?
 Are you always OK to get some iris rhizom? You can give me your address in a note.  The blossom isn't over.I'll send them during the 2nd fortnight of June.

FROM DAY TO NIGHT

Every day I rise from sleep again
as if for the last time.
I don’t know what awaits me,
perhaps it follows logically, then,
that nothing awaits me.
The spring on its way
is like the spring gone by.
I know about the month of May
but pay it no mind.
For me there’s no border between night and day,
just that night is colder
though silence is equal to them both.
At dawn I hear the voices of birds.
I fall asleep easily
out of affection for them.
The one who is dear to me is not here,
perhaps he simply is not.
I cross over from day to night
from day to day
like a feather
the bird doesn’t feel as it falls away.

I read that blue is the most popular colour. It must have a calming effect. :)
