Ode to Paul Morand

Dear friend, what is this Arc Lamp
That has prevented you from attending the Joan of Arc festivals...
Is it inconceivable that I found it with fire
Yet he (Proust) gets more and more indulgent every day.

(Extract from my Ode to Paul Morand
that will not be published)

In his book of poetry Les Lampes d'arc Paul Morand had written Ode à Marcel Proust.
