Remembrance Day

Une petite page de bloc-notes de l’an dernier, retrouvée par hasard ces jours-ci… 

Fear not, reader: I am not contemplating a future in English poetry; I just happen to take notes in whatever language volunteers first – oddities and mistakes notwithstanding. This was written a year ago, in Germany, while I was waiting for my flight to Edinburgh. Our friend Hans, from Germany-based Breton music band An Erminig, had kindly taken the time to show me a bit of his Sarre region, including a war memorial site and several crossings of a now-invisible border.
