L’ultime départ

Tu as préféré

tout garder pour toi

Pour moi pas un mot

Pas un signe

Qui aurait pu me révéler

Quelques-uns de tes secrets.

Pour t’égayer

et pour que tu te décides

à rompre le silence

Je n’ai rien trouvé

de mieux que de t’offrir

ce bouquet de lys de notre jardin.

D’adorables lys

d’un rouge écarlate

triomphants et majestueux

qui, en ce jour d’été,

se dressent dans nos plates-bandes

An Appeal

Dear Reader

65 years ago Mauritius Times was founded with a resolve to fight for justice and fairness and the advancement of the public good. It has never deviated from this principle no matter how daunting the challenges and how costly the price it has had to pay at different times of our history.

With print journalism struggling to keep afloat due to falling advertising revenues and the wide availability of free sources of information, it is crucially important for the Mauritius Times to survive and prosper. We can only continue doing it with the support of our readers.

The best way you can support our efforts is to take a subscription or by making a recurring donation through a Standing Order to our non-profit Foundation.
Thank you.
