Sample text

From Le Miroir du Ciel Natal La Nuit est seule, comme un pauvre. Les réverbères offrent Leur flamme jaune Comme une aumône. La nuit se tait comme une église close. Les réverbères mélancoliques Ouvrent leur flamme rose Comme des bouquets de lumière, Des bouquets sous un verre et qui sont des reliques, Par qui la Nuit s’emplit d’Indulgences plénières. 21 22 an anthology of belgian symbolist poets The Night endures pain! The streetlamps, in a chorus, Dart their red and sulphurous flame, Like votive images, And Sacred Hearts, Which the wind bleeds with cold knives.
