Treasure Island

bill costley

(May 21,1942 / Salem MA usa)

Ne prenez pas d'arme 'a feu


Ne prenez pas d'arme 'a feu pour aller
Aun bapteme, 'a la premiere piece de theatre
de votre enfant au lyce'e
A une confirmation, a un mariage
Au second mariage de votre ex-epouse
A votre dernier jour au travail
Parce qu'il y a des fortes chances
Que vous le regrettiez bien vite
Et que tous les autres le regrettent aussi
Donc, n'yallez pas avec une arme 'a feu

(trad. par Marie Rivet)

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
