[Tableau d'honneur d'anciens combattants
de la Première Guerre mondiale en Afghanistan]

Chez-nous il existe une rue des ancêtres
Où des mémoires suspendues à un siècle de souvenances
Racontent l'existence de gens qui ont passé
Où leurs temps nous rejoignent, orphelins des vieux jours

Gérald Mercier, extrait du recueil de poèmes,
L'assise paru en 2005

[English]

[Honor roll of Veterans from World War I to Afghanistan]

Back home there is a street of our forebears
Where memories clinging to a century of remembrance
Tell of those who travelled by
Where they reach out to us, orphans of the past.

Gérald Mercier, from the collection of poems, The seat appeared in 2005
