Flowers (Fleurs)
by Arthur Rimbaud (1872-75); translated by Helen Rootham (1938).

Seated on a golden stair—amongst silken cords, grey gauzes, green velvets, and crystal disks which blacken in the sun like bronze—I watch the foxglove open on a ground of filagree-work of silver, eyes and hair.

Pieces of yellow gold lie scattered upon the agate, mahogany pillars support a dome of emeralds, white satin bouquets and slender twigs of rubies encircle the water-lily.

Like a blue-eyed god sculptured in snow, the sea and the sky draw to the marble terraces the crowd of strong young roses.
