Il en tombe un grand silence. Le vent porte ces féeries En offrandes à Noël. Bientôt minuit sonnera N’entendez-vous point des pas? Entrez, Joseph et Marie! C’est pour vous que luit le ciel, Voici du pain et du beurre, Des pommes et du café; Asseyez-vous au foyer, Pour attendre ensemble l’heure Où dans un miracle blanc Naîtra le petit Enfant. (Brabançonnes à travers les arbres) ****** Je ne te quitterai jamais, ô vie, Je t’aime trop, mais si toi tu t’en vas, Choisis le moment où, bien endormie, Morphée ami me tiendra dans ses bras.

After working as a private tutor for a short time, Marie Closset taught literature at the college level for a period of five or six years. She resigned her position in 1912 and founded the Belgian Institute of French Culture (Institut Belge de Culture Française), which she directed until her death in 1952, at the age of seventy-nine.
Je t’ai bâti, ô mon amour, ma ville grise. Rue après rue en y perdant tous mes chemins. Tu levais durement tes mâts et tes églises Hors de la haute mer, que lavait le matin. Je te suivais alors en ta foule marchande Dans ta peau d’homme et dans tes banques du bonheur Par tes palais cirés où de calmes servantes De leurs doigts sans anneaux te caressaient le coeur. Mes orgueils balancés à mon pas de bourgeoise, Mon âme ne portait jamais que du lin blanc, Et cet or hollandais sous la guimpe sournoise.
