“I speak of the greenness of an immense delta;
I speak of the ibis and pink flamingos in flight.
And I speak of the mallards buzzing in the air
like rocks thrown by a catapult,
of the eel that is as sly as a snake,
the silvery tench of the ponds.
I speak of the long silence where the
fresh water of the river and the bitter sea meet.
I speak of a river amidst reedbeds, tamed;
of orange trees in bloom and tender celery,
of the hoe and the falcon, of the dog on the threshing floor.”
