To An Imaginary Being (A une raison)
by Arthur Rimbaud (1872-75); translated by Helen Rootham (1938).

One beat of your finger upon the drum sets loose all sounds, and is the birth of a new harmony.

You take one step—new men arise and march forth.

You turn aside your head: it is the new love. You look towards us: it is the new love.

'Change our lots, destroy our scourges, commencing with Time,' these children cry to you. 'Erect where you will the substance of our fortunes and our prayers,' we beseech you.

For ever arriving, everywhere you will pass away.
