Soir d’hiver by Émile Nelligan

Possibly the most famous lines in the history of Quebec poetry, from Soir d’hiver (c.1898) by Émile Nelligan: “Oh! How the snow’s been snowing!/My window pane is a garden of frost./Oh! How the snow’s been snowing!/What’s the spasm of living/Next to all this pain I have, I have!” nelligan2
