Mer (Sète)

Published by at 9:51 am under mer

Ce toit tranquille, où marchent des colombes,
Entre les pins palpite, entre les tombes;
Midi le juste y compose de feux
La mer, la mer, toujours recommencée
O récompense après une pensée
Qu’un long regard sur le calme des dieux!

    I love these photos. I assume that the poem is by Paul Valery.

    the middle one isn’t mine, it’s a painting by someone who’s exhibited in the lovely Musée Paul Valéry, just opposite the Cimetière Marin … next time, I’ll check his name !
    yes, it’s my favourite extract by Paul Valéry, the one I keep repeating to check my memory …
