Serge Thoraval - A Kiss Stacking Rings

290.00

A stacking set of seven stack rings hand engraved with inspiration from "Un Baiser" by French poet and dramatist Edmond Rostand. The text is found in his eminent play Cyrano de Bergerac from Act 3, Scene 4.

"Un Baiser" , Edmond Rostand
Un baiser, mais à tout prendre, qu'est-ce?
Un serment fait d'un peu plus près,
une promesse plus prècise,
un aveu qui veut se confirmer,
un point rose qu'on met sur l’i du verbe aimer;
C'est un secret qui prend la bouche pour oreille,
un instant d'infini qui fait un bruit d'abeille,
une communion ayant un goût de fleur,
c'est une façon d'un peu se respirer le cœur,
et d'un peu se goûter, au bord des lèvres, l'âme!

And what is a kiss, specifically?
A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste,
A vow stamped with the immediate of a lip,
A rosy circle drawn around the verb "to love."
A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear,
Infinity captured in the bee's brief visit to a flower,
Secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven,
The pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover's lips: Forever.
