Alain Delahaye: “Le Paysage Intense”/”The Intense Landscape”

Candle light

 

Le Paysage Intense

phrases rêvées de feu, puis effacées
pour qu’il y ait le feu

il faudra que la voix
ait le même silence
que la clarté de l’air

être de tout amour
comme le livre existe entier dans la blancheur

Alain Delahaye

 

 

 

 

The Intense Landscape
words dreamed by fire, then erased
so the fire might begin

the voice must have
the same silence
as the radiant air

being of all love
as the book lives whole in whiteness

Translation by Paul Auster

  1. I like your poem and thank you for use my photo.

  2. Le feu n’est point dans l’âtre une chose frileuse !
