French Poet 1854 - 1891
  was one of the great Inspirations for the Surrealists.
  He wrote all of his poetry in a space of less than five years.
  1871    The true poet must be a seer

      There are almost as many varieties of flora
      As there are of glass stoppers.

  1874 Abandoned poetry and France for gun running in Africa.
