Zedina in Translation


Zedina, she is called

The scent of citrus and cinnamon

And red poppies

Tint the velvet of her mouth

Her soft lips, inviting

Below her dark eyes, brilliant

They scintillate, two savants

Zedina – she tempts you

Her every gesture, every word

Is delicious, without fault

And her smile merits

A joyful, eager response

The smile she hides behind

Midnight hair, a mystery

Born of a fragrant night

Her entire person tempts you

Zedina, she is called

The scent of citrus and cinnamon.

This is the translation of Zedina, which is originally French. It  seems quite different to me in English so I’ll keep this translation separate.
