Vicente Huidobro
“Eiffel Tower"
To Robert Delaunay

Eiffel Tower
Guitar of the sky

Your wireless telegraphy
Attracts words
As a rosebush the bees

During the night
The Seine no longer flows

Telescope or bugle

EIFFEL TOWER

And it's a hive of words
Or an inkwell of honey

At the bottom of dawn
A spider with barbed-wire legs
Was making its web of clouds

My little boy
To climb the Eiffel Tower
You climb on a song

Do
re
mi
fa
sol
la
ti
do

We are up on top

A bird sings
in the telegraph
antennae

It's the wind
Of Europe
The electric wind

Over there

The hats fly away
They have wings but they don't sing

Jacqueline
Daughter of France
What do you see up there

The Seine is asleep
Under the shadow of its bridges

I see the Earth turning
And I blow my bugle
Toward all the seas

On the path
Of your perfume
All the bees and the words go their way

On the four horizons
Who has not heard this song

I AM THE QUEEN OF THE DAWN OF THE POLES
I AM THE COMPASS THE ROSE OF THE WINDS THAT FADES
EVERY FALL
AND ALL FULL OF SNOW
I DIE FROM THE DEATH OF THAT ROSE
IN MY HEAD A BIRD SINGS ALL YEAR LONG

That's the way the Tower spoke to me one day

Eiffel Tower
Aviary of the world
Sing Sing
Chimes of Paris

The giant hanging in the midst of the void
Is the poster of France

The day of Victory
You will tell it to the stars”
Vicente Huidobro, The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

Vicente Huidobro
“Morning"

SUN

That awakens Paris

The highest poplar on the bank

On The Eiffel Tower
A tricolored cock
Sings to the flapping of his wings
and several feathers fall

As it resumes its course
The Seine looks between the bridges
For her old route

And the Obelisk
That has forgotten the Egyptian words
Has not blossomed this year

SUN”
Vicente Huidobro, The Cubist Poets in Paris: An Anthology

But in again and you'll pay."

nom de plume

A.S. Peterson
“Le Havre-de-Grâce lay cornered by the Atlantic and the river Seine. A humble city, low and flat, and unremarkable save for its cathedral; its minaret overlooked the port like an artificial moon scaffolded into the sky.”
A.S. Peterson, Fiddler's Green

Mary Butts
“But of Paris it can be said that the right bank of the Seine belongs to the world, and the left bank to France.”
Mary Butts, The Complete Stories

“Envoi

Tombe d'un rêve de novembre
J'ai mis ce pouème à l'eau de Seine
Du mieux que j'ai pu, en lumière.

(in Queneau en novembre)”
