Arthur Rimbaud born on this day 1854

 Rimbaud (second to left) depicted in an 1872 painting by Henri Fantin-Latour

















The wolf cried out under the leaves
Spitting the beautiful feathers
from his feast of foul.
Like him, I devour myself.

Le loup criait sous les feuilles
En crachant les belles plumes
De son repas de volailles :
Comme lui je me consume.
