Translated: Poems of Philippe Delaveau

Here are some translations of Philippe Delaveau that appeared in the Poetry Foundation magazine. In the one French version given, it can be seen that his sense of meter is more or less lost in the translation below it. However, it is good to have any translation at all of this most important poet of our era (with around 25 chapbooks published in France, many by Gallimard.)
