J'Ai Rencontre Un Prophete. - Poem by Michael Walker

J'ai rencontre un prophete.
Il tenait aux mains
Le livre de la sagesse.
'Monsieur, ' lui ai-je adresse la parole,
'Permettez-moi lire.'
'Mon enfant- 'a-t-il commence.
'Monsieur, 'dis-je,
'Ne pensez pas que je suis enfant,
'Car deja je sais beaucoup
De ce que vous tenez,
'Aye, beaucoup.'

Il sourit,
Puis il ouvrit le livre
Et le tint devant moi.-
Etrange que je serais devenu
Si soudainement aveugle.'

-'I met a seer'. Stephen Crane. 1895.

This is a translation of the poem I Met A Seer by Stephen Crane
