Forgotten Spaces

Another poem in English, translated to French, and translated back. 

Original English

Steps no longer
Able to be stepped on
Trees behind tall walls
Eminating a birds song
Dusty rooms who’s
Stillness is forever unreachable

These are our hidden places
Like the lure
Of a sweet scent
They turn faces
As thoughts of mystery and
Adventure around the mind chases

Their magic is to lurk
In the most obvious spot
As if cloaked in life’s noise
They will be forgot
But their wafting presence
Draws special eyes aloft

Eyes that explore
Eyes that are curious
Eyes that like a challenge
For what is in these hidden spaces?
Not material gains perhaps
But lost moments and treasure maps

In French

Les étapes ne sont plus
Capable d’être épaulé
Arbres derrière de hauts murs
Eminant une chanson d’oiseaux
Des pièces poussiéreuses qui sont
Le silence est toujours inaccessible

Ce sont nos endroits cachés Comme le leurre
D’un doux parfum
Ils tournent des visages
Comme des pensées de mystère et
Aventure autour de l’esprit chasse Leur magie est de se cacher
Dans l’endroit le plus évident

Comme si masqué dans le bruit de la vie
Ils seront oubliés
Mais leur présence flamboyante
Dessine des yeux spéciaux en altitude
Des yeux qui explorent

Les yeux curieux
Des yeux qui aiment un défi
Pour ce qui est dans ces espaces cachés?
Pas de gains matériels peut-être Mais des moments perdus et des cartes au trésor

Translated English

The steps are no more
Able to be shouldered
Trees behind high walls
Eminant a song of birds
Dusty pieces that are
Silent is still inaccessible

These are our hidden places
Like the lure Of a sweet perfume
They turn faces
Like mystery thoughts and
Adventure around the hunting spirit
Their magic is to hide

In the most obvious place
As if masked in the noise of life They will be forgotten
But their flamboyant presence
Draws special eyes in altitude
Eyes that explore

Curious eyes
Eyes that love a challenge
For what is in these hidden spaces?
No material gains perhaps
But lost moments and treasure maps
