I have come to know the skies splitting with lightnings, and the vast watersprouts
and the breaks and currents: I know the evening,
and dawn rising up like a flock of doves,
And sometimes I have seen what men have imagined they saw !
Rimbaud, Arthur (1854-1891), The Drunken Boat
As translated by Oliver Bernard : Arthur Rimbaud, Collected Poems (1962)
