Je Maintiendrai

"... Le refus de la politique militante, le privilège absolu concédé à la littérature, la liberté de l'allure, le style comme une éthique, la continuité d'une recherche". Pol Vandromme

THE smoke upon your altar dies,
The flowers decay.
The Goddess of your sacrifice
Has flown away.
What profit then to sing or slay
The sacrifice from day to day ?

"We know the shrine is void," they said,

"The Goddess flown -
"Yet wreaths are on the altar laid
- "The Altar-Stone "
Is black with fumes of sacrifice,
"Albeit She has fled our eyes.

"For, it may be, if still we sing "
And tend the shrine,
"Some deity on wandering wing
"May there incline;
"And finding all in order meet,
"Stay while we worship at her feet. "

R. Kipling
