The Venal Muse Analysis

Author: poem of Charles Baudelaire Type: poem Views: 9

Sponsored Links

O muse of my heart, lover of palaces,

Will you bring, when January lets loose its sleet

And its black evenings without solace,

An ember to warm my violet feet?

What will revive your bruised shoulders,

The nocturnal rays that pierce the shutters?

When you cannot feel your palace, just your empty billfold,

How will you harvest the gold of azure vaults and gutters?

You should, to earn your bread today

Like a choir boy with a censer to wave,

Sings hymns with feeling but without belief.

Or, a starving rip-off artist, selling your charm

And your laughter shades the tears so no one sees the harm

In bringing to bloom an ordinary rat, a vulgar thief.

Translated by William A. Sigler
