VOWELS, by Arthur Rimbaud, 1854-1891

A Black, E white, I red, O blue, U green: vowels,
I shall tell, one day, of your mysterious origins:
A, black velvety jacket of brilliant flies
Which buzz around cruel smells, gulfs of shadow

E, whiteness of vapors and of tents,
Lances of proud glaciers, white kings,
shivers of cow-parsley;
I, purples, spat blood, smile of beautiful lips
In anger or in the raptures of penitence;

U, waves, divine shudderings of viridian seas,
The peace of pastures dotted with animals, the peace
of the furrows
Which alchemy prints on broad studious foreheads;

O, sublime Trumpet full of strange piercing sounds,
Silences crossed by Worlds and by Angels:
- O the Omega, the violet ray of Her Eyes.

Happy Birthday!



Strapped in and ready to go.

VOYELLES (Arthur Rimbaud, original French)

A noir, E blanc, I rouge, U vert, O bleu : voyelles,
Je dirai quelque jour vos naissances latentes :
A, noir corset velu des mouches iclatantes
Qui bombinent autour des puanteurs cruelles,

Golfes d'ombre ; E, candeur des vapeurs et des tentes,
Lances des glaciers fiers, rois blancs, frissons
d'ombelles ;
I, pourpres, sang crachi, rire des lhvres belles
Dans la colhre ou les ivresses pinitentes ;

U, cycles, vibrements divins des mers virides,
Paix des pbtis semis d'animaux, paix des rides
Que l'alchimie imprime aux grands fronts studieux ;

O, suprjme Clairon plein des strideurs itranges,
Silence traversis des Mondes et des Anges:
- O l'Omiga, rayon violet de Ses Yeux!

Have a happy birthday, Sweetie!

I'm thinking of you on this very special day.

Four years ago, Grandpa and I were in Macedonia, awaiting your birth and wishing we could have been there to be present for your grand entrance into the world.

Always reach high!

Up and away

See you at your birthday party!

Love, Grandma Jennifer and Grandpa Jerry

P.S. You're never too young for great poetry.
