The Book of Secrets. 1-/ A Winter's Dream.


Seulement pour les fous *

Par une belle nuit d’hiver lors d’une promenade à travers la campagne, j’aperçus une comète qui fusait dans la splendeur de la Voie Lactée. Subjugué par toute cette beauté, je décidai aussitôt de partir pour le Sud.
De retour à la maison, j’achetais un billet, réservais quelques nuits d’hôtel sur Internet, et dès le lendemain je quittais par le train de nuit la capitale balayée par un vent glacial qui semblait tout droit descendre du Cercle Arctique.
Tandis que les wagon-lits traversaient une bonne partie de l’Europe je somnolais le plus souvent et m’endormais quelquefois, rêvant alors de barques d’or qui, par-delà des eaux ténébreuses, emportaient des cargaisons de dormeurs au pays des songes.

Dans les Alpes une violente tempête de neige se déclencha, retardant considérablement le train, de telle manière que les horloges de la Cité sonnaient trois heures de l’après-midi lorsque celui-ci s’immobilisa en gare de La Soglia dei Sogni

(D’après le roman de H. Hesse «Le Loup des Steppes» ).

For fools only. *

On a beautiful winter night during a walk in the countryside, I saw a comet that was leaking in the splendor of the Milky Way. Overwhelmed by all this beauty I decided immediatly to leave for the South.
Back home, I bought a ticket, booked few hotel nights on the internet, and the next day I left for the night train the capital frozen in the cold wind directly blowing from the Arctic Circle.
While the wagon beds crossed a large part of Europe I was more often napping but fell asleep sometimes dreaming of gold boats, that, beyond the dark waters prevailed shipments of sleepers in dreamland .

In the Alps a snowstorm broke out, significantly delaying the train, so that instead of arriving mid-morning, the clocks of the city struck three hours when it stopped in the station of La Soglia
dei Sogni.
