“And he went back to meet the fox.

“Goodbye,” he said.

“Goodbye,” said the fox. “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret : It is only with the heart that one can see rightly ; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

–  The Little Prince, Antoine De Saint-Exupery.

“J’ai une âme solitaire”

Animals, My Poems

Teddy

“J’ai une âme solitaire”

There’s not much I can do about it,

Especially when I’m amongst other souls

I end up feeling more lonely than if there were no other.

Of course I can always try to beat it

But I get caught up in my thoughts about owls

who, as you know, are not what they seem.

My friend Fox keeps leaving his trail behind him

I keep finding the odd shoe or teddy he has borrowed

And he leaves them in my way, on the side of the road

or in the woods, and when I find his trail,

It makes me smile without fail.

Then I’m reminded that I’m not on my own after all!

Even if that feeling of loneliness is within me

The reality is: my animal friends are all around me

and they keep leaving treasures behind

For me – or whoever pays attention – to find!

 With all my love to the owls, the foxes and all the animals who walk, crawl, swim or fly over this Earth.

Noemie.
