Had I been there
Looking across at the glacier
And wondering why it recedes
And does not advance,
I would surely have gone
To the little cafe on the wharf
And lunched on fresh halibut.
I would have been
Where I ought to have been,
In my mind, fishing deep waters.

Poésie de Palestine

si peu de chants d’oiseaux
et, revenant au bercail –

nous avons fait fleurir le désert
nous avons fait chanter le désert
