Chance.(Translation) . - Poem by Michael Walker

Quelquefois une miette tombe
Des tables de la joie,
Quelquefois un os
Est jete.

A quelques gens
L'amour est donne,
A d'autres
Le ciel seul.
-1959.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is all about luck. A crumb may fall to the needy ' from the tables of joy', in the manner of someone may flinging a bone to a dog. Some people find love as if by fortune: others have to wait for God's love in heaven.
