Lament for the old cemetery

blach-and-white photo of road through wooded cemetery

What place is this
that sings alone
half devoured
by some spiteful air
what city spreads
such emptiness

Quel est ce lieu
qui chante tout seul
à demi rongé
d’un air mauvais
quelle ville autour
s’étend déserte

Untitled poem by Jacques Brault.
