Example text

Along the funereal ramparts, All along the iron factories, Where the hammers pound the light, She trails her way to burial. These are the piers and the barracks, Always piers and their lanterns, Slow, motionless spinners Of the dark gold of their lights; Emile Verhaeren La Morte En sa robe, couleur de feu et de poison, Le cadavre de ma raison Traîne sur la Tamise. Des ponts de bronze, où les wagons Entrechoquent d’interminables bruits de gonds Et des voiles de bâteaux sombres Laissent sur elle, choir leur ombres.

From Le Régne du Silence L’Eau, pour qui souffre, est une soeur de charité Que n’a pu satisfaire aucune joie humaine Et qui se cache, douce et le sourire amère, Sous une guimpe et sous un froc d’obscurité; Son amour du repos, son dégoût de la vie Sont si contagieux que plus d’un l’a suivie Dans la chapelle d’ombre, au fond pieux des eaux, Où, tranquille, elle chante au pied des longs roseaux Dont l’orgue aux verts tuyaux l’accompagne en sourdine. Elle chante! Elle dit: «Les doux abris que j’ai Pour ceux de qui le coeur est trop découragé.

Sweet! you smother and enfeeble All of the tumult, shapes, uproar; Wavering snow, you seem to vanish, Far, most far away, in the haze of the streets! And you die the death, for which we have prayed, A white end, thoughtful, pious, serene, A pardoned death, which slowly tells Georges Rodenbach “L’Eau, pour qui souffre . ” from Le Régne du Silence L’Eau, pour qui souffre, est une soeur de charité Que n’a pu satisfaire aucune joie humaine Et qui se cache, douce et le sourire amère, Sous une guimpe et sous un froc d’obscurité; Son amour du repos, son dégoût de la vie Sont si contagieux que plus d’un l’a suivie Dans la chapelle d’ombre, au fond pieux des eaux, Où, tranquille, elle chante au pied des longs roseaux Dont l’orgue aux verts tuyaux l’accompagne en sourdine.
