Unproductive!… Coffins, lead weights, sepulchral stones,
Bones even, industry will know how to use them well!
How our hands tear up the annals of the past!
Progress comes, these walls prevent it from passing:

Roll down, ancient bridges! Down, feudal towers!
We need debris to raise ourselves up,
We shall think ourselves greater in size and in thought
When nothing will rise higher than our sandals. […]

Hello to all, My name is Benjamin, I am the happy father of 2 beautiful children. I have always loved to read, since I was a child, I isolate myself to read everything and anything, novels, comics, economic news, pattern and also poems. This is the reason for this site, because poems have allowed me to learn and strengthen my English which I must say was not very developed... thanks to the French schools. I would like to tell you about the books I have read in my short life (yes, I am only 34).
