La Vie Bourgeoise


Le panneau 'attention au chien'
N'exonère pas la responsabilité du maître.
J'y pense au sommet d'un soleil fixe,
J'y crois au centre d'une richesse à tâtons,
J'ai raison car je connais la force de mon indignation.
Je sais qu'il est éminemment probable d'être insignifiant,
Je crains le sourire narquois cachant l'obole.
Ma fortune est insuffisante et j'estime
Celle des autres étroite, je vois leurs châteaux exigus,
Leurs certitudes trop semblables aux miennes.
Alors les doigts crispés sur le mégaphone
J'essaie de me réveiller.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
