“The Beautiful Season” by Jacques Prevert

The Beautiful Season

hungry   lost   cold
all alone without a cent
a young girl
sixteen years old
stands still
Place de la Concorde
at noon
on the Fifteenth of August

– Jacques Prevert, from Selected Poems, translated by Carol Poster, 1987, White Pine Press
