Départ by Arthur Rimbaud



Enough seen. The vision has found itself with every state.

Enough had. Murmurs of the cities, at dusk, and in the sun, and always.

Enough known. The stops of life. —O Murmurs and Visions!

Push-off into the new affection and noise.

Arthur Rimbaud,
tr. Alex Rodallec


Assez vu. La vision s’est rencontrée à tous les airs.

Assez eu. Rumeurs des villes, le soir, et au soleil, et toujours.

Assez connu. Les arrêts de la vie.  — Ô Rumeurs et Visions!

Départ dans l’affection et le bruit neufs.
