The Herb Garden

Snowdrops in the bath tub we use as a herb garden. And here's a poem by Paul Eluard (in French)
Une herbe pauvre, sauvage,
apparut dans la neige,
c’était la santé.
Ma bouche fut émerveillée
du goût d’air pur qu’elle avait,
elle était fanée
Here's a link containing an English translation (pdf document) if you need it.
And here's Francis Poulenc's setting of those words:

Simple and luminous, 90 seconds of mastery!
