To My Son

Since your eyes closed in sleep
Mine have not ceased to weep


A simple tablet placed on the wall of Fort Vaux, the second fort to fall at the Battle of Verdun in March 1916.   The above is a rough translation.

A Mon Fils
Depuis que tes yeux sont fermees
Les miens n'ont cesse de pleurer
