The Prayer of the Cockerel - Carmen Bernos de Gasztold

Do not forget, Lord,
it is l who make the sun rise.
I am Your servant
but, with the dignity of my calling,
I need some glitter and ostentation.
Noblesse oblige...
All the same,
I am Your servant,
only... do not forget, Lord,
I make the sun rise.

Carmen Bernos de Gasztold (1919 - 1995) France
Translated by Rumer Godden
