Je Me Tenais Sur Un Endroit Eleve. - Poem by Michael Walker

Je me tenais sur un endroit eleve,
Et j'ai vu, en bas, beaucoup de diables
En courant, en sautant,
Et en carousant dans le peche.
L'un d'entre eux regarda en haut, en ricanant,
Et dit, 'Mon camarade! Mon frere! '

_ 'I stood on a high place.'
Stephen Crane. 1895.

This is a translation of the poem I Stood Upon A High Place by Stephen Crane

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Many of Crane's poems feature one man alone
in a remote place, in dialogue with one other man or spirit-like this poem. The devil equates with the lure of sin to the poet, I think.
