Toi à Orly

Qu’importe ton retard de deux jours

A notre rendez-vous parisien !

L’essentiel c’est que tu sois venue.

Les dieux nous laissent

Le choix du lieu de rencontre,

Mais décident eux-mêmes

De l’heure et du jour.

Le matin où ton avion atterrit

Je ne voyais que toi à Orly

Auréolée d’un arc-en-ciel.

 

Quinze degrés Celsius à Paris

En cette période de l’année.

Qu’as-tu besoin de voir

La neige sur la ville ?

Contente-toi des jours ensoleillés,

Il ne fera jamais

Zéro degré dans notre cœur.

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.
