"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Fleur de Lys

fleur de lis

one day with sun and with no luck
a glimpse of its shine drew you near
seeing it fallen in the old bazaar
lost from the chain around the neck of an old woman

getting closer you took it in your hand
wiping away the dust and the ashes
you bit it and admired the genuine gold
and kept it as lucky charm between your trembling fingers

you’ll never know that it holds
the touch of her beloved hand and her kiss,
the beautiful gypsy, your only true love, fleur de lys,
and her love spell whispered to find you
