There is a certain garden

There is a certain garden

“There is a certain garden where I know
That flowers flourish in a poet’s spring,
Where aye young birds their amorous matins sing,
And never ill wind comes, nor any snow.

But if you wonder where so fair a show,
Where such eternal pleasure may be seen,
I say, my memory keeps that garden green,
Wherein I loved my first love long ago.”

(J.H. McCarthy in There is a certain garden)

    die ogenschijnlijke vruchteloze
    zwarte akker
    nabij Bressoux

    dat liefde daar moge bloeien
    als april
    nabij bressoux
