The Nocturnal Rose

I am going to kiss this nocturnal rose

Which only opens her beautiful soul

Solely at night when it is absolutely very dark

This yellow flower at daylight

Fades away with the envy of a rebirth

At the first sound of the evening bells

When the biggest star comes into sight

In the evening to bring happiness and well-being

This colored rose is prettier, more ravishing

Than the rainbow of a Sunday afternoon

This is her, with her sweet and blessed kisses

Who charms and makes me dream until dawn

In the morning, leaving a suave essence on the pores

Of my hypnotized carcass, which dangles in the air

Like two satisfied lovers in the depths of a velvety lair

Oh! Oh! Darling, I’m going to sleep well tonight

Yes, I am going to dream under the nitescence of hope.
