DPF / Ponge

For elegance, from A Book of Luminous Things, edited by Czeslaw Milosz.

from The Frog / by Francis Ponge (1899-1988)

When little matchsticks of rain bounce off drenched fields, an amphibian dwarf, a maimed Ophelia, barely the size of a fist, sometimes hops under the poet’s feet and flings herself into the next pond.
