Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Belgian poet Géo Norge (pseudonym of Georges Mogin, 1898-1990), designed by Anne Velghe (1941- ), printed by photogravure, and issued by Belgium on February 16, 1998 to commemorate the poet's birth centenary, Scott No. 1681, plus a photo of Géo Norge which may have been a model for this stamp's design, and his popular poem Une Chanson ("A Song"), with an English translation of it. Bonus: Signature.

Une Chanson

Une chanson bonne à mâcher
Dure à la dent et douce au cœur.
Ma sœur, il faut pas te fâcher.
Ma sœur.

Une chanson bonne à mâcher
Quand il fait noir, quand il fait peur.
Comme à la lèvre du vacher.
La fleur.

Une chanson bonne à mâcher
Qui aurait le goût du bonheur.
Mon enfance et de tes ruchers
L'odeur.

- Géo Norge

A Song

A good chewing song
Hard to the tooth and soft to the heart.
My sister, you must not get angry.
My sister.

A good chewing song
When it's dark, when it's scary.
As on the cow's lip.
The flower.

A good chewing song
Who would have the taste of happiness.
My childhood and your apiaries
The smell.

Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Hungarian poet Mihály Csokonai Vitéz (1773-1805), designed by Sándor Légrády (1906-1987), printed by photogravure, and issued by Hungary on July 28, 1955, Scott No. 1137, plus an image of the cover of a collection of Mihály Csokonai Vitéz's poems entitled Lilla, and an English translation of his poem A boldogság ("Happiness," 1797).

- nethryk



Happiness

Now in the jasmine arbour
on this cool summer evening
I sit close to my Lilla
while Lilla joins me humming
and plays the game of kisses
While her brown, pretty tresses
Zephyr's whisper caresses.

I placed upon the meadow
a demijohn of good wine,
and with a tender rosebud
I closed its mouth comme il faut.
Inside my basket waited
Anacreon's good verses
with strawberries I'd just picked.

Whoever has in one place
seen so much delight gathered?
Whose bliss can ever match mine?

- Mihály Csokonai Vitéz

Here is an image of a stamp featuring a portrait of Rudaki (c. 859-940), a Persian poet known as the "Adam of Poets," regarded as the first great literary genius of the Modern Persian language, and depicting a harp and writing materials, printed by photogravure, and issued by Iran on March 16, 1964 to publicize the opening of the Blind Institute, Scott No. 1288, plus an image of a bronze bust of Rudaki, and a sample of his poetry in translation. Note: It is believed by some scholars that Rudaki was either born blind, or was blind from early childhood.

Look at the cloud, how it cries like a grieving man
Thunder moans like a lover with a broken heart.
Now and then the sun peeks from behind the clouds
Like a prisoner hiding from the guard.

- Rudaki
