Here is the magnificent Patti Smith song, “Easter.”
Isabelle, Frederick, and Vitalie were Rimbaud’s brother and sisters, by the way.
She was raised Catholic and there are many traces of Catholicism in her life and work. Among other things, there’s this song; there’s the title track of her album Wave, which is about Pope John Paul I; and last year, there was this.
Happy Easter to one and all!
