Animal Poetry

Ursula Whitcher

A group of poems about animals, and possibly gods as well. I've included a literal translation or trot as well as my own English version of each poem.


Io Restored, from the Metamorphoses, by P. Ovidius Naso

Sardines à L'Huile, by Georges Fourest

From Le Bestiaire ou Cortège d'Orphée, by Guillaume Apollinaire
