Michel Dubois: About 60 years ago, at school, I translated a poem by Leconte de Lisle. According to me at the time, the title was 'The red planet', which is called Sahil; my rendition of the first lines was:
Across the wasted continents
The drowsy waves still swell..."
And the last -
"Sahil shall bleed
Until its red can never bleed again."
Does anyone know where I might find a copy of the original version?
