Talking fact and fiction

Sleeper in the Valley, peach blossoms and Captain Rimbaud
96

Hello everyone,

This evening it’s very quiet out. A few sirens. I thought to read a very nice poem by Rimbaud called Sleeper in the Valley. A teenage boy writes of a young soldier’s death with uncommon delicacy. The translation is by Wyatt Mason. And below, in his own language.
