J’ai frappé (1922)

J’ai frappé

Ma main a frappé les portes closes
Et d’autres mains au loin ont répondu.
Mon front a frappé les portes closes
Et d’autres fronts au loin ont répondu.
Mon cœur a frappé les portes closes
Mais l’écho de mon cœur seul a répondu.

My hand has struck

My hand has struck closed doors
And other hands have replied from afar.
My brow has struck closed doors
And other brows have replied from afar.
My heart has struck closed doors
But only my heart’s echo replied.
