lourd!
Le fossoyeur dort mieux que les morts qu'il enterre.
Quel silence profond! la route est solitaire;

L'echo lui-meme est sourd.

LE VER.

A moi tes bras d'ivoire, a moi ta gorge blanche,
A moi tes flancs polis avec ta belle hanche

A l'ondoyant contour;
A moi tes petits pieds, ta main douce et ta bouche,
Et ce premier baiser que ta pudeur farouche

Refusait a l'amour.

LA TREPASSEE.

C'en est fait! c'en est fait! Il est la! sa morsure
M'ouvre au flanc une lame et profonde blessure;

Il me ronge le coeur.
Quelle torture! O Dieu, quelle angoisse cruelle!
Mais que faites-vous donc lorsque je vous appelle,

O ma mere, o ma soeur?

LE VER.

Dans leur ame deja ta memoire est fanee,
Et pourtant sur ta fosse, o pauvre abandonnee,

L'oranger est tout frais.
La tenture funebre a peine repliee,
Comme un songe d'hier elles t'ont oubliee,

Author of the Day

Angela Roquet
Angela Roquet loves everything macabre - with a dash of comedy. She is also fascinated by world religions, the afterlife and mythology. This clearly shows in her work, where mythological characters tend to make an appearance, showing off their more mundane sides. Today, Roquet talks to us about what inspired her book, Graveyard Shift, why she has a female reaper in the leading role and how she used to raise eyebrows in public with the types of books she was reading.
