    Robert Desnos 1900-1945 is the most exciting French poet of the 20th century. Translators have hardly done him justice. With luck, much more of his wonderful achievement will be available in English before too long.

Fairy Tale

Many times upon a time
There was a man who loved a woman.
Many times upon a time
There was a woman who loved a man.
Many times upon a time
There was a man and there was a woman
Who did not love the ones who loved them.

Once upon a time
Perhaps only once
A man and a woman who loved each other.

[Hata Bildir]
