The Straight and Narrow Road


Children’s Parade, Robert Doisneau, c. 1945

 

LE DROIT CHEMIN

“A chaque kilomètre
chaque année
des viei
llards au front borné
indiquent aux enfants la route
d’un geste de ciment armé.”

Jacques Prévert

“At each mile
each year
old men with closed faces
point out the road to children
with gestures of reinforced concrete.”
