Those who write clearly have readers, those who write obscurely have commentators. - Camus


                   NIGHT

 My voice, to which love lends a tenderness and yearning,
 Disturbs night's dreamy calm... Pale at my bedside burning,
 A taper wastes away... From out my heart there surge
 Swift verses, streams of love, that hum and sing and merge
 And, full of you, rush on, with passion overflowing.
 I seem to see your eyes that, in the darkness glowing,
 Meet mine... I see your smile... You speak to me alone:
 My friend, my dearest friend... I love ... I'm yours ...
                                                        your own.
 1823
