Paul Eluard (14 December 1895 – 18 November 1952 / Saint Denis / Paris)
I Only Wish To Love You
I only wish to love you
A storm fills the valley
A fish the river
I have made you the size of my solitude
The whole world to hide in
Days and nights to understand
To see no more in your eyes
Than what I think of you
And a world in your image
And days and nights ruled by your eyelids.
