La Belle Saison / Summer


Jacques Prévert


translated by Derek Pollard





La Belle Saison



A jeun perdue glacée

Toute seule sans un sou

Une fille de seize ans

Immobile debout

Place de la Concorde

A midi le Quinze Août.







Hungry lost stricken

All alone without a penny

A girl of sixteen

Standing stock still

Place de la Concorde

Noon August fifteenth.
