For Poets United poets
I give this gift:
The Poet's Simple Faith,
by Victor Hugo.
You say, "Where goest thou?" I cannot tell,
And still go on. If but the way be straight,
It cannot go amiss! before me lies
Dawn and the Day; the Night behind me; that
Suffices me; I break the bounds; I see,
And nothing more; believe, and nothing less.
My future is not one of my concerns.
Translated by Prof. E. Dowden
