Nicolas Grenier - Three Poems


Snow, in the air taken, dizzy,
To the origins quite coming back.
(White cloud falling back
On the landscape, silently.)


As a vast dream lying
You stare at the sky
Back to the air, fleeting.


Between sky and earth,
Snow, as a Beauty
Which is changing
Every moment
The form of the landscape.

*translated from French by Emmanuel Cheiron.
