Photographer's Note

Au sommet de sa colline,
le vieux cerisier en avait vu passer du temps.
Il avait connu les saisons qui changent et qui ne se ressemblent plus.
Il avait connu les chevaux de labour et les tracteurs diesels.
Il avait senti l'odeur du purin et les insecticides.
Il avait vu toutes sortes d'oiseaux et aussi des épouvantails.
Il avait vu dans le ciel le premier aéronef, puis le bruit assourdissant des avions militaires.
Il avait vu des promeneuses en robe longue et puis des Vélos Tout Terrains.
Il avait défié le temps sans pouvoir raconter.

*****

At the top of its hill, the old cherry tree had seen some time passing.
It had known the seasons which change and which do not resemble each other any more. It had known the plough horses and the tractors diesels.
It had felt the odor of liquid manure and insecticides.
It had seen all kinds of birds and also scarecrows.
It had seen in the sky the first aircraft, then the deafening noise of the military aircrafts.
It had seen the walkers with evening gown and then Bicycles Any Grounds.
It had defied time without being able to tell.
