Now That the Snows Are Melting
Down from the Pyrenees,
the Garonne swells
close to the houses,
no longer our friend.
The Garonne rises up to the willows,
near the pretty rose-covered doors,
not our friend.
From mouth to tail, it threatens.
Snow roars down. Near the rose-
covered doors, it doesn’t knock politely.
It threatens, unlike good pilgrims
who march neatly by with their staves.
Down from the Pyrenees, it rages
close to the houses.
