Poetry Friday: La Clef des Songes (The Key of Dreams) by Robert Desnos

Cook or poet
Businessman or carpenter
Everyone loves laziness
Leisure, sleep, and dreams
For dreams are spectacles
A dream is a lucky ticket
That night gives as a gift to the dreamer
Luck that is our due
It’s an everyday miracle
A night without dreams
          Without love
          Is lost.

- the first verse of La Clef des Songes (The Key of Dreams) by Robert Desnos
