« Maintenant, va, mon Livre, où le hasard te mène. »

« Et le soleil dardait un rayon monotone
Sur le bois jaunissant où la bise détone. »

« Nous étions seul à seule et marchions en rêvant,
Elle et moi, les cheveux et la pensée au vent. »

Je fais souvent ce rêve étrange et pénétrant

Something muscular and blue-purple surges beneath these poetical tales. Is this work "hermetic" -- constructed of complex symbols for occult forces? Maybe.

Here is my translation of the first five lines of "The Nightingale," from the serie

Paul-Marie Verlaine was a French poet associated with the Symbolist movement. He is considered one of the greatest representatives of the fin de siècle in international and French poetry.
