Only the children sleep at night,
The poets console their rhymes,
The masons fall  from ladders,
The bosses collect euros.

They sleep in limbo blues,
In the clouds which murmur,
The children think of sheeps,
of boats and of small bears.

Only the women know how to dream,
They caress the small cats,
They breast-feed stars,
The children listen to them at night.

Your poetry always pleases yann. I'm especially fond of these lines:

Only the women know how to dream,
They caress the small cats,
They breast-feed stars


C'est magnifique!

I'm with Bluesy on those three lines.

This is so lovely, reading it is like singing a lullaby too.
