Air Vif

Poem By Paul Eluard

I looked in front of me
In the crowd I saw you
Among the wheat I saw you
Beneath a tree I saw you

At the end of my journeys
In the depths of my torment
At the corner of every smile
Emerging from water and fire

Summer and winter I saw you
All through my house I saw you
In my arms I saw you
In my dreams I saw you

I will never leave you.

At the corner of every smile.... thanks for posting...
a lovely poem of the total love of another? .............wonderfully written.
Passionate and Romantic Beautifully flowing, Deeply Semantic (well formed)
The poem is a joy to read and has a mystic air from beginning to the end like you find in a Sufi writing. Thanks for sharing.
All through my house I saw you In my arms I saw you In my dreams I saw you I will never leave you....yes, one can't leave his nearer and dearer or his adorable God. This is a beautiful poem having philosophical ground. Thanks for sharing.
