Verlaine, Rimbaud

I'm going to France the day after tomorrow! To celebrate I have bought some french poetry, to read while I'm there. I've heard of Verlaine and Rimbaud, but never read anything by them. I'd like to see that film where David Thewlis plays Verlaine. Ah, here it is: Total Eclipse.

I thought I'd post a couple of poems by them, because they are really interesting writers.

Nesbitt next

James Nesbitt tipped as new Who, when Tennant bows out at the end of the next series? OK, this is from The Sun who are lying Murdoch scum, but I think it sounds plausible. What do you think? Likely to happen? Good or bad? I know: a poll.

Oh, I know - can you say who else you think it might plausibly be, and who you'd like to see? Should have put that in as a text question but I forgot.

ETA Iain posts a comment to say that Stephen Moffat has publicly denied these rumours. I therefore revert to my 'lying Murdoch scum' stance. Anyway, it's been an interesting discussion.
