"And from that time on I bathed in the Poem of the Sea,
star-infused and churned into milk,
devouring the green azures;
where, entranced in pallid flotsam,
a dreaming drowned man sometimes goes down;
I have seen the low-hanging Sun speckled with mystic horrors.
Lighting up long violet coagulations,
Like the performers in very-antique dramas.
Waves rolling back into the distances their shiverings of venetian blinds!
I have dreamed of the green Night of the dazzled snows.
The kiss rising slowly to the eyes of the seas,
the circulation of undreamed-of saps,
And the yellow-blue awakenings of singing phosphorus!
I have followed, for whole months on end,
the swells battering the reefs like hysterical herds of cows,
never dreaming that the luminous feet of the Marys
could force back the muzzles of snorting Oceans!
I have seen the enormous swamps seething,
traps where a whole Leviathan rots in the reeds.
Downfalls of waters in the midst of the calm
and distances cataracting down into the Abyss!"
Excerpt from 'The Drunken Boat' by Arthur Rimbaud
