J'ai Marche Dans Un Desert. - Poem by Michael Walker

J'ai marche dans un desert,
Et j'ai crie,
'Helas, mon Dieu, prenez-moi de ce lieu! '
Une voix a dit, 'Ce n'est pas un desert'.
Je me suis crie, 'Bien, mais-
'Le sable, la chaleur, l'horizon vide.'
Une voix a dit, 'Ce n'est point un desert'.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Gradually, this poem made me think more and more. It is the way the voice contradicts the man so completely that intrigues me. The man is right, to me.
