Treasure Island

Paul Eluard

(14 December 1895 – 18 November 1952 / Saint Denis / Paris)

Certitude


If I speak it’s to hear you more clearly
If I hear you I’m sure to understand you

If you smile it’s the better to enter me
If you smile I will see the world entire

If I embrace you it’s to widen myself
If we live everything will turn to joy

If I leave you we’ll remember each other
In leaving you we’ll find each other again.

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay
