Free Verse: Translation Of Paul Verlaine's Vers Libres


(Yet another possible translation of Paul Verlaine’s « Vers Libres » by T. Wignesan, though I prefer in my translations not to derange the visual structure and syntactical and linear layout – with some exceptions - of the poem)

    Bonjour! Sandra! Of course, it's the music in you. Poets tap into this current that's out there vibrating all the time: the Big-Bang particles still coursing through us all - all the time. Feel floored by your kudos! Not used to such praise. Guess I have to take a pill or something! Thanks ever so much for taking the trouble to call... Every good wish. Wignesan (Report) Reply

    There is something about rhyme
    That makes my heart climb
    Is it the music in me?
    Or is it the sound of the Sea
    That tells me that I'm Free
    Don't get me wrong, this is a great translation, a difficult on, must read many times. Poetry is the most difficult thing to translate especially, from a latin language to and anglo saxon one. You are very talented, S (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
