A collection of poems written by a woman to her husband during almost forty years with Gabriel, historian, journalist, specialist in both the language and culture of Romanche, but also a poet. In the beginning the poems speak of the difficulties of living together. Toward the end they speak of disease, a pain that cannot  be shared, the approach of death. Between the two extremes, they speak of life. A collection of poems about love?

As a wife, and also a poet and proprietor of Samizdat Editions, Denise Mützenberg shares this collection of poems.

Denise Mützenberg Oberli was born in Yverdon September 3, 1942. From 1958 to 1961 she attended the Ecole Normale de Lausanne. Then she became a teacher in Lignerolle. In 1965, she married Gabriel Mützenberg (1919-2002) historian and journalist in Geneva. Over twenty years, together they directed the magazine "Certitudes", organized cultural trips (especially in the Grisons), as well as gatherings on the theme "Art and Faith". With Gabriel at her side, she participated in a passionate defense of Rhaeto-Romanic languages and literature . In 1992, she created Samizdat, a small publishing house, devoted to poetry, that she operates with her sister Claire Krähenbühl.

She has always written in the margins of her life.
