Au-dessus des étangs, au-dessus des vallées
Des montagnes, du bois, des nuages, des mers,
Par delà le soleil, par delà les éthers,
Par delà les confins des sphères etoilées.

Above the valleys and the lakes, beyond
The woods, seas, clouds and mountain-ranges, far
Above the sun, the aethers silver-swanned
With nebulae and the remotest star.

Baudelaire, trans. Roy Campbell.
