National Poetry Day..at least here

National Poetry Day gives me an excuse to repost a couple of playlists and a favourite of mine by electronic music pioneer Ruth White : )

Words translated from Charles Baudelaire, “Brumes et pluies” (Mists and Rains) Cover artwork by Henri Matisse.

‘late autumns, winters, springtimes steeped in mud,
o drowsy seasons i love and i praise you…’
