Le bonheur d’être mère


Le bonheur d’être mère

Ne sois pas modeste,

Dans ce monde égoïste

Tu peux demander le maximum

Et c’est légitime.

Il suffit que tu aspires

Au bonheur d’être mère 

Pour qu’on se dise 

Que tu l’as connu.

Si chacune de tes prières 

Était exaucée,

Tous les enfants de l’univers

Seraient les nôtres,

Et la terre entière 

Serait une vaste crèche 

Où retentiraient des piaillements

A n’en plus finir.

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.
