J'Ai Vu Un Homme Qui Poursuivait L'Horizon. - Poem by Michael Walker

J'ai vu un homme qui poursuivait l'horizon;
En rond et en rond ils se hataient,
Moi, j'ai ete trouble de ceci;
J'ai accoste l'homme.
'Il est futile', dis-je,
'Vous ne pouvez jamais- '

'Vous etes menteur, ' s'ecria-t-il,
Et il continua a courir.

This is a translation of the poem I Saw A Man Pursuing The Horizon by Stephen Crane

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The poem needs to be read for symbolism. The man represents the way people have of pursuing impossible dreams, disregarding any wise, contrary advice. Strange as it seems, I have found that tendency in my own life. The subject of why we will not listen to good advice is a deep, complex one, I think.
