A GRAIN OF SAND

Nothing makes a poet
For they are born.
We are but small seeds sown
Upon a great unknown:
That never knew or grew
To be much more
Than tiny grain of sand!

Panmelys


LE GRAIN DE SABLE

On ne devient pas poète.
On naît poète.

Nous sommes que de petites graines
semées par le vent
dans le vaste inconnu.

Jamais elles n'ont pu grandir,
ni jamais devenir plus importantes
que cet infirme grain de sable !
