Recueillement by Charles Baudelaire

by DerEinzige

Be wise, O my Sorrow, be calmer.

You implored the evening; it falls; here it is:

A dusky air surrounds the town,

Bringing peace to some, worry to others.

_______________________________________________

Whilst the worthless crowd of humanity,

Lashed by Pleasure, that merciless torturer,

Go to gather remorse in slavish rejoicing,

Give me your hand, my Sorrow; come with me,

__________________________________________

Far from them. See the dead years leaning,

In worn-out clothing, on the balconies of the skies;

See how Regret, grinning, rises from the deep waters;

__________________________________________________

The dying sun goes to sleep in an archway,

And, like a long shroud dragging from the East,

Hear, O my dear one, hear the soft night coming.
