Magnetic Horror (Horreur sympathique)
by Charles Baudelaire (1861); translated by Cyril Scott (1909).

"Beneath this sky, so livid and strange,
Tormented like thy destiny,
What thoughts within thy spirit range
Themselves? — O libertine reply."

— With vain desires, for ever torn
Towards the uncertain, and the vast,
And yet, like Ovid — I'll not mourn —
Who from his Roman Heaven was cast.

O heavens, turbulent as the streams,
In you I mirror forth my pride!
Your clouds, which clad in mourning, glide,

Are the hearses of my dreams,
And in your illusion lies the hell,
Wherein my heart delights to dwell.
