Classic and Contemporary Poetry
MARINE, by ARTHUR RIMBAUD Poet's Biography
First Line: The chariots of silver and copper
Last Line: Whose angle is struck by the whirlwinds of light.
Subject(s): Sea; Ocean
The chariots of silver and copper,
The prows of steel and silver
And lift up the stumps of the bramble.
The currents of the heath
And the immense ruts delved by their reflux
Veer in a circle to the east,
Toward the pillars of the forest,
Toward the piles of the jetty,
Whose angle is struck by the whirlwinds of light.
