From Rimbaud, ‘Les Illuminations’, 1873

Depart

Assez vu. La vision s’est rencontree a tous les airs.
Asses eu. Rumeurs de ville, le soir at au soleil et toujours.
Assez connu. Les arrets de la vie. – O Rumeurs et Visions.
Depart dans l’affection and le bruit neufs.

Depart

Seen enough. The vision can be had on any street corner.
Had enough. The endless gossip of the city, at dawn, at dusk.
Known enough. The pauses of life. – O Rumour! O Fantasy!
Depart –  into a new sound and a new tenderness.
