We are honor to present the works of Nicolas Grenier


Nicolas Grenier is a young French poet.
He is published by fifty literary reviews, and worked with a former Minister.
In addition, he is also a professor at HEC, and he lives in Paris.


Snow, in the air taken, dizzy,
To the origins quite coming back.
(White cloud falling back
On the landscape, silently.)


As a vast dream lying
You stare at the sky
Back to the air, fleeting.


Between sky and earth,
Snow, as a Beauty
Which is changing
Every moment
The form of the landscape.

(All three poems were translated by Emmanuel Cheiron)
