    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.

Epitaph

I lived in those times. For a thousand years
I have been dead. Not fallen, but hunted;
When all human decency was imprisoned,
I was free amongst the masked slaves.

I lived in those times, yet I was free.
I watched the river, the earth, the sky,
Turning around me, keeping their balance,
The seasons provided their birds and their honey.

[Hata Bildir]
