Paganini

Violon hippocampe et sirène
Berceau des coeurs coeur et berceau
Larmes de Marie-Madeleine
Soupir d’une Reine
Écho
Violon orgueil des mains légères
Départ à cheval sur les eaux
Amour chevauchant le mystère
Voleur en prière
Oiseau
Violon femme morganatique
Chat botté courant la forêt
Puits des vérités lunatiques
Confession publique
Corset
Violon alcool de l’âme en peine
Préférence. Muscle du soir
Épaule des saisons soudaines
Feuille de chêne
Miroir
Violon chevalier du silence
Jouet évadé du bonheur
Poitrine des mille présences
Bateau de plaisance
Chasseur

Paganini

Violin sea-horse and siren,
Cradle of hearts heart and cradle
Tears of Mary Magdalene
A queen’s sigh
Echo
Violin pride of delicate hands
Departure on horseback over the waters
Love astride mystery
Theif at prayer
Bird
Violin morganatic wife
Puss-in-Boots ranging the forest
Well of capricious truths
Public confession
Corset
Violin alcohol of the troubled soul
Preference muscle of the evening
Shoulders of sudden seasons
Oak-leaf
Mirror
Violin knight of silence
Toy escaped from happiness,
Breast of a thousand presences
Pleasure-boat
Hunter.
