Gustave Nadaud Quote

Thy pardon, Father, I beseech,
In this my prayer if I offend;
One something sees beyond his reach
From childhood to his journey's end.
My wife, our little boy Aignan,
Have travelled even to Narbonne;
My grandchild has seen Perpignan;
And I — have not seen Carcassonne.


Stanza 5. - Carcassonne, (c. 1887; with translation by John Reuben Thompson)
