Un Homme Vit Une Balle D'Or Au Ciel. - Poem by Michael Walker

Un homme vit une balle d'or au ciel;
Il grimpa a la recherche d'elle,
Et enfin il l'acheva-
Elle etait d'argile.

Voici donc la partie etrange:
Quand l'homme alla a la terre
Et regarda encore une fois,
Voila, la balle d'or etait la.
Voici donc la partie etrange:
C'etait une balle d'or.
Aye, juste ciel, c'etait une balle d'or.


- 'A man saw a ball of gold in the sky.'
Stephen Crane. 1895.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A deceptively simple poem about how unreliable the human senses can be. In a way, we see what we want to see: we pursue impossible dreams.
