Dimanche

Entre les rangées d'arbres de l'avenue des Gobelins
Une statue de marbre me conduit par la main
Aujourd'hui c'est dimanche les cinémas sont pleins
Les oiseaux dans les branches regardent les humains
Et la statue m'embrasse mais personne ne nous voit
Sauf un enfant aveugle qui nous montre du doigt.

    Sunday By Jacques Prevert

    Between the rows of trees on the Avenue des Gobelins
    A marble statue is leading me by the hand
    Today is Sunday; the cinemas are full
    The birds in the branches are watching the humans
    And the statue is kissing me but nobody sees us
    Except a blind child, who is pointing the finger at us.

    Between the rows of trees on the avenue des Gobelins
    A marble statue leads me by the hand
    Today is Sunday the cinemas are full
    The birds in the branches watch the humans
    And the statue embraces me but no one sees us
    Except a blind child who points the finger at us. (By Google) the embracing sees none the the blind child (the future) /// superb poem penned

    A poem with a language where what seems not real or possible has a twist at the end.

    Sunday by Jacques Prevert (Translation from Adam, Emil)

    Between the rows of trees on l'Avenue des Gobelins
    A marble statue takes me by the hand
    Today is Sunday the cinemas are full
    The birds in the branches watch the humans
    And the statue kisses me but no one sees us
    Except for a blind child who points at us.

    Sunday (English)
    Between the rows of trees on l’Avenue des Gobelins

    A marble statue takes me by the hand

    Today is Sunday the cinemas are full

    The birds in the branches watch the humans

    And the statue kisses me but no one sees us

    Except for a blind child who points at us.

    Such a sad mournful poem Crowds and singularity yet the blind see and the sighted are blind.

    You might have got a French speaker rather than an illiterate computer to read this poem. Go on. You know it makes sense.
