Arthur Rimbaud


PS_20141218045330


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)
