To Paint The Portrait Of A Bird... By Jacques Prévert
First paint a cage
With an open door
For the bird
Then place the canvas against a tree
In a garden
In a wood
Or in a forest
Hide yourself behind the tree
Sometimes the bird will arrive soon
But it could also easily take many years
For it to decide
Wait if necessary for years
The rapidity or slowness of the arrival of the bird
Has no connection with the success of the painting
When the bird arrives
If it ...
The Great Blue Heron
How majestic, how proud, how elegant
Is the Great Blue Heron
If one believed in God
One would see His impressive creation.
But watch the heron swallow a ten foot snake
Longer than the bird itself by half
What then does one of God’s creation make?
Did He create this world for a monstrous laugh?
