To Introduce Myself… - Poem by Stéphane Mallarmé

To introduce myself to your story
It’s as the frightened hero
If he touched with naked toe
A blade of territory

Prejudicial to glaciers I
Know of no sin’s naivety
Whose loud laugh of victory
You won’t have then denied

Say if I’m not filled with joyousness
Thunder and rubies to the hubs no less
To see in the air this fire is piercing

With royal kingdoms far scattering
The wheel crimson, as if in dying,
Of my chariot’s single evening.
