If you like modern poetry you will enjoy this selection of poetry. Yves Bonnefoy is a sensitive and profound poet. He starts from a simple activity, like taking a walk in the woods, describing elements along the path and transcends his brief exposé with a meditative, transcendental thought. Like a Gothic cathedral that starts with the rough stone and becomes more and more ethereal as it goes up and reaches the light trough the colored glass or vitreaux. Even the light is transformed as it is reflected.
