Triste, a escutar, pancada por pancada,
A sucessividade dos segundos,
Ouço, em sons subterrâneos, do Orbe oriundos,
O choro da Energia abandonada!

É a dor da Força desaproveitada
— O cantochão dos dínamos profundos,
Que, podendo mover milhões de mundos,
jazem ainda na estática do Nada!

É o soluço da forma ainda imprecisa...
Da transcendência que se não realiza...
Da luz que não chegou a ser lampejo...

E é em suma, o subconsciente ai formidando
Da Natureza que parou, chorando,
No rudimentarismo do Desejo!

Venise qu'on dirait, avec ses grands palais,
Une flotte échouée au bord de sa lagune,
Où le pêcheur croit prendre, aux clartés de la lune,
Les étoiles dans ses filets...
