Charles Baudelaire

The sadness of the Moon

 

French poetry

English translation

 

 

 

This evening the Moon dreams more languidly,

Like a beauty who on many cushions rests,

And with her light hand fondles lingeringly,

Before she sleeps, the slope of her sweet breasts.

 

On her soft satined avalanches’ height

Dying, she laps herself for hours and hours

In long, long swoons, and gazes at the white

Visions which rise athwart the blue-like flowers.

 

 

When sometimes in her perfect indolence

She lets a furtive tear steal gently thence,

 

Some pious poet, a lone, sleepless one,

Takes in his hollowed hand this gem, shot through,

Like an opal stone, with gleams of every hue,

 

And in his heart’s

depths hides it

from the sun.
