Risset, Jacqueline: M. S. 1544*

Portre of Risset, Jacqueline

M. S. 1544* (French)

A contempler

Pour être tout


mais quand au but —

que ceux que tient

par ton regard —

qui de la terre —

pris du regard —

petit objet —

plutôt au temps —

plutôt le nom —

mais si à tous —

que dans la voix —

ainsi voit-on —

pour ouvrir l’autre —

que si en moi —

qu’en te —

le contraire —

ou le rapport —

sachant que tout —

et si en toi —


tu vois —

que voir —

ainsi dit-il

de qui — et de qui l’oeil —

tant qu’autre n’ —

ne pourra donc —

quand tout midi? —

qui la pensée —


moins plus plus plus —

en un moment —

tant je qu’en il —

tel —

M. S. 1544 (English)

For consideration

To be all things


but when at end —

so those that hold

on by your look —

who of the earth —

took for the look —

little object —

sooner in time —

sooner in name —

but if for all —

than in the voice —

one sees therefore —

to open the other —

that if in me —

that of it you —

the reverse —

or the relation —

knowing that everything —

and if in you —


you see —

that seeing —

as thus he says

of whom — and of whom the eye —

so long as no other —

will thus be unable —

when every twelve o’clock?

who thought —


less more more more

in a moment —

as much in me as he —

as —
