Chariots of copper and of silver –
Prows of silver and steel –
Thresh upon the foam, –
Upheave the stumps and brambles.
The currents of the heath,
And the enormous ruts of the ebb,
Flow circularly toward the east,
Toward the pillars of the forest, –
Toward the boles of the jetty,
Against whose edge whirlwinds of light collide.
— Arthur Rimbaud, “Seascape,” Illuminations, translated by John Ashbery. (New Directions; Rev ed. edition January 17, 1957) Originally published 1875.
