Like virgin prairie resisting the plow

Ellen Ringstad. "Like virgin prairie resisting the plow"- at "Dissensus 2014", Bergen.

At Dissensus, Bergen, 2014.

 

La Nature est un temple où de vivants piliers
Laissent parfois sortir de confuses paroles;
L’homme y passe à travers des forêts de symboles
Qui l’observent avec des regards familiers.

(Nature is a temple in which living pillars
Sometimes give voice to confused words;
Man passes there through forests of symbols
Which look at him with understanding eyes.)

– Charles Baudelaire, “Correspondances”, Fleurs du Mal. English translation: William Aggeler, The Flowers of Evil (Fresno, CA: Academy Library Guild, 1954)
