Thanks Dan.
Shared the "moth" one on our little "Amis de la poésie, bonjour" FB Group with french translation :

Mais vois comme une mite
avec ses antennes roussies
se baigne dans la lumière.

(Trad. AxoDom)

I second Charles's comment. Also, heartwarming to see a photographic image of a public phone. Do they still exist? Thanks, Donna
