Baudelaire, Charles - Le Voyage - We want to break the boredom of our jails
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From The Voyage by Charles Baudelaire - translated by Robert Lowell
We want to break the boredom of our jails
And cross the oceans without oars or steam –
Give us visions to stretch our minds like sails
The blue, exotic shoreline of your dream!
Tell us, what have you seen?
