Awakening, Translated to English by M. Alexandrian
At last
that which awakened the earth
was the shining hand of October,
and that which helped time roll
was the autumn's branch -
throw away
the remaining contracted pain of summer,
to set aside
the dust accumulated cover,
open again
my eye-lid and that of earth.

I awake,
in front of my eye and earth
a hand
risen from asleep
the blue skin of the windowpane's backside!...
