CHARLES BAUDELAIRE IN THE BOIS, by            
First Line: Over the fountains, over the pavements where
Last Line: That drugged his torment, lulled his heart to rest.
Subject(s): Baudelaire, Charles (1821-1867); French Poetry - Symbolism; Poetry & Poets


Over the fountains, over the pavements where
A street girl saunters idly, trailing
Her lacy skirts with a flirtatious air --
Plunged through the topaz clouds the moon is sailing,
Like the moon's shadow, slipping through the dark
And leafy boulevard, a warm-hearted ghost
Smiles at the clinging lovers in the park
And tries to speak; but then his words are lost.
The earth exiles him, and the stretching sea
Denies to him the winds from her billows rising;
But sharper pain: an old tryst's memory,
Musky with moments of love's improvising;
And sharpest loss: the touch of a silken breast
That drugged his torment, lulled his heart to rest.
