The poem :

My forehead against the glass like the watchmen of grief

Sky whose night I have surpassed

Plains so small in my open hands

In their double horizon inert indifferent

My forehead against the glass like the watchmen of grief

I look for you beyond all expectation

Beyond even myself

And no longer know loving you so

Which of us two is absent.

Paul Eluard

“Love, Poetry”
