Un soir, l’âme du vin chantait dans les bouteilles:
Homme, vers toi je pousse, ô cher déshérité,
Sous ma prison de verre et mes cires vermeilles,
Un chant plein de lumière et de fraternité!
One evening the soul of wine sang in the bottles:
Oh my dear disinherited, a wish for you tonight
In containing glass and rosy wax that throttles,
A song that’s full of friendship and light!
– from L’Ame du Vin,
Charles Baudelaire 1857
