Poems Responding to La Fontaine

1965  "A Note to La Fontaine," poem by Jean Garrigue in "Selected Poems," published by University of Illinois Press in Urbana, 1992.  Poem first appeared in "The New Yorker" in 1965.  Available through Internet Archive.

Garrigue catches La Fontaine's sentiments, I believe, beautifully.  Fie on the ant life!  Live to sing and to be enchanted.
