Paul Verlaine Poems

  • What Sayst Thou, Traveller, Of All Thou Saw'st Afar?
    What sayst thou, traveller, of all thou saw'st afar?
    On every tree hangs boredom, ripening to its fall,
    Didst gather it, thou smoking yon thy sad cigar,
    Black, casting an incongruous shadow on the wall?...
  • Walcourt
    Briques et tuiles,
    O les charmants
    Petits asiles
    Pour les amants!...
  • Voeu
    Ah! les oarystis! les premières maîtresses!
    L'or des cheveux, l'azur des yeux, la fleur des chairs,
    Et puis, parmi l'odeur des corps jeunes et chers,

  • Vers Pour être Calomnié
    A Charles Vignier.

  • Vendanges
    A Gorges Hall.

John Bunyan Poem
Upon The Sun's Reflection Upon The Clouds In A Fair Morning
 by John Bunyan

Look yonder, ah! methinks mine eyes do see
Clouds edged with silver, as fine garments be;
They look as if they saw that golden face
That makes black clouds most beautiful with grace.
Unto the saints' sweet incense, or their prayer,
These smoky curdled clouds I do compare.
