Do you have the soul of a poet? Follow the scent of this legend...

Once upon a time, there was a lover of letters who scribbled poems day and night, dreaming of the glory of a Verlaine, Rimbaud or Nelligan. On the lookout for sad and dramatic stories, he would even go so far as to sabotage his love relationships to give himself the raw material for his poetry. But, despite all his efforts, he could not write a text that satisfied him.

So he began to read, devouring collections of poems at all hours of the day and night. "I'm going to find inspiration through reading," he kept repeating to himself. Despite his constant efforts, he came up against the blank page. And the more stubbornly he tried to find inspiration, the more isolated he became, and the more the whole world irritated him! He despaired of those people who lacked the most basic culture, raged at those oddballs who preferred to cultivate their bodies rather than their minds. Eventually he lost his appetite, then his sleep. More and more anxious, he scribbled lines anywhere and anytime, his mind more and more disturbed by terrible obsessions about the fate of humanity.

One morning, when he had only slept, as he did every night, for one or two hours, he decided that enough was enough. Determined to put an end to his devouring suffering, he went to consult the village druid. The latter, quickly understanding that the being in front of him was prey to a beginning of neurosis, advised him a mixture of essential oils of lavender and lime, with tonic and soothing virtues.

The Poet followed his prescription to the letter, and made great use of these essential oils. Little by little, he felt what he had not felt for a long time, a certain calm and a beginning of serenity. He came to realize that by dint of reading the words of others, he could no longer hear his own voice. He chose to try the experience of living, instead of reading. Looking around him, he fell in love, went on a trip, took long walks in the forest, contemplated the changing seasons, observed nature in its smallest details. A passion for horticulture blossomed in him and he carefully recorded his precious observations. From line to line, the work improved and became a must-have for budding horticulturists and all lovers of poetry.

This collection was finally acclaimed, and our poet experienced glory, a glory that now left him somewhat indifferent since he had found the joy of living.
