Rimbaud explores the intoxication of nature and the excesses that lead to love... when you're young and lose your inhibitions. When you're 17, you can have a summer romance, then go back to school and tell everyone how you fell in love, and what a great summer you had.
His beloved makes him a man. It's about becoming an adult. It's about the euphoria of summer, being carefree, having freedom... happiness and joy. There's a neologism in the third stanza. A reference to Robinson Crusoe. You have an adventure but ultimately you're alone. It ends as it begins. Life is often symbolised by an unbroken circle, infinitely repeating itself. It's not just a poem about meeting someone. It's like a diagnosis of youthful dreams of love.

None of your business.
-Come on, tell me! I won't tell Mum.
Did he talk about me?
How old are you really?
17... Lovely age. I was 17 when I met Georges. I knew he saw other women. At first it hurts... In the end it suited me. I've always been melancholy. If I'd been brave, less shy... I'd have liked men to pay me to make love. But I never dared. Sometimes I fantasized about it. Now I'm too old. I'm the one who'd have to pay.
