Bai Juyi Poems

    It paralyzes with uncertain longings. ...

    Like fallen leaves they have tumbled to the Nether Springs. ...

Charles Baudelaire Poem
Le Voyage
 by Charles Baudelaire

A Maxime Du Camp

Pour l'enfant, amoureux de cartes et d'estampes,
L'univers est égal à son vaste appétit.
Ah! que le monde est grand à la clarté des lampes!
Aux yeux du souvenir que le monde est petit!
