Madly In Love with Victor Hugo

Last night I fell madly in love with Victor Hugo.

I have never met him, or walked along
Avenues that bear his name.
I love the house where he lived in Paris
Where he touched all these beautiful things
I love his drawings that revealed a tumultous soul
who longed for a fortress home.
Stroke by stroke, a dash - the light
He kept his art from the world at large

So that his words take centrestage
Les Miserables - the greatest story of the nineteenth century
The Hunchback of Notre Dame gave Paris her sanctuary
But most of all I love Victor's words of wisdom, of love
Of a closeness not to religion, but God.
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
- Victor Hugo

Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved - Victor Hugo
There is nothing like dream to create the future
- Victor Hugo

Love is like a tree
It grows on its own accord
It puts down deep roots
Into our whole being
- Victor Hugo
All the forces in the world is not as powerful as an idea whose time has come - Victor Hugo
I love Victor Hugo.
My new blog dedicated to my attempt at French poetry
is entitled La poesie de ninotaziz et Victor Hugo
