Alain Corneau’s “Tous Les Matins du Monde” (1991)

As the newsprung day begins to break,
Herald by the morning call of birds
And cradled in the sun’s outstretched arms,
I step outside in the cool, dew-filled air
Like Lazarus emerging from the darkness of the tomb
Raised to life to greet the wonder of this new day.

The Romantic poets, nib pens, candlelight, waistcoats, and pocket watches are a few of my favorite things.

  1. “Tous le matins” was one of my favorite all-time movies and what an incredible soundtrack! Back when the movie was released, I loved Jordi Savall’s incredible musicianship and sought out other CDs of him playing music of Marais and St. Colombe. Enjoyed your poem!

    • I’ve seen several of Savall’s performances on YouTube. Savall rocks! ( in a classical way ). Have you happened to read Pascal Quignard’s short novel that the movie’s based on? He’s also a passionate music lover and a viol player as well.

      • No, I haven’t read the book, but now that you’ve told me I’ll be seeking it out. I truly adored the movie – thanks so much for the additional info!
