the beautiful witches
You, who liked the moon, the trees
And the spirits of nature,
You, who filled the forests
With your songs and your dances,
You have been tortured and condemned to the stake.
You were the innocence
And the light of the world,
Darkness did not like your radiant beings.
The Indian would like to tell you
May your memory awaken again
May a new wind arise over Europe,
Peddling at last your voice
Beyond towns and countrysides,
Allowing the ancestral strings
Of human spirit, vibrate,
Within the sound of Nature
And wisdom, found once again.
My thanks, beautiful witches,
My silence and my solitude are completely filled by you
