Poem

A la porte de la maison qui viendra frapper?
Une porte ouverte on entre
Une porte fermée un antre
Le monde bat de l’autre côté de ma porte.

[At the door of the house who will come knocking?
An open door, we enter
A closed door, a den
The world pulse beats beyond my door.]

Pierre Albert-Birot
Les amusements naturels
(Quoted in Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space)
