Jaques Prevert has some very haunting poems and was one of the fathers of the French absurdity movement. I am disappointed that certain people chose to deface this post with inappropriate and irrelevant comments.

The Best Poem Of Jacques Prevert

Paris At Night

Trois allumettes une à une allumées dans la nuit
La premiére pour voir ton visage tout entier
La seconde pour voir tes yeux
La dernière pour voir ta bouche
Et l'obscuritè tout entière pour me rappeler tout cela
En te serrant dans mes bras.

(translation:
Three matches one by one struck in the night
The first to see your face in its entirety
The second to see your eyes
The last to see your mouth
And the darkness all around to remind me of all these
As I hold you in my arms.)
