Zacharie Astruc (1833-1907)

Sierra Club


When tired of dreaming, Olympia awakens / Spring enters on the arms of the mild black messenger / She is the slave who, like the amorous night /Comes to adorn with flowers the day beautiful to behold / The august young woman is whom ardor is ever wakeful. - Poem by Astruc
