Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks!...

Language: English

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!	 
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drench'd our steeples, drown'd the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers [to]1 oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o' the world!
Crack nature's moulds, all germens spill at once
That make ingrateful man!

Vents, soufflez à crever vos joues !...

Language: French (Français) after the English

Vents, soufflez à crever vos joues ! faites rage ! soufflez !
Cataractes et ouragans, dégorgez-vous
jusqu’à ce que vous ayez submergé nos clochers et noyé leurs coqs !
Vous, éclairs sulfureux, actifs comme l’idée,
avant-coureurs de la foudre qui fend les chênes,
venez roussir ma tête blanche ! Et toi, tonnerre exterminateur,
 écrase le globe massif du monde,
brise les moules de la nature et détruis en un instant tous les germes
qui font l’ingrate humanité.
