Sample text

From Le Régne du Silence Silence: c’est la voix qui se traîne, un peu lasse, De la dame de mon Silence, à très doux pas Effeuillant les lis blancs de son teint dans la glace; Convalescent à peine, et qui voit tout là-bas Les arbres, les passants, des ponts, une rivière, Où cheminent de grands nuages de lumière, Mais qui, trop faible encore, est prise tout à coup D’un ennui de la vie et comme d’un dégoût Et,—plus subtile, étant malade,—mi-brisée, Dit: «Le bruit me fait mal; qu’on ferme la croisée .

Eau calme du miroir impossible à tarir; On y s’oublie; on y dérive; on y recule .

She sets out for chances, Hidden in shadow and in the mist, Alongside the hushed sounds of dull tocsins, Breaking their wings at the angle of the towers. In the distance, leaving distressed The city, breathing life, She sets out for the dark riddle, To sleep in the graveyards of evening, Where the slow, almighty oceans Open their limitless, gaping mouth, To devour for all eternity, The grey corpses of enigma. The Revolt from The Black Torches (1891) Toward some remote city of riot and outcry, Where the guillotine flashes its shining steel, With a sudden, insane desire, my heart sets forth.
