Lady Love | Paul Eluard, 1924

Paul Eluard & Gala, 1913

She is standing on my lids
And her hair is in my hair
She has the colour of my eye
She has the body of my hand
In my shade she is engulfed
As a stone against the sky

She will never close her eyes
And she does not let me sleep
And her dreams in the bright day
Make the suns evaporate
And me laugh cry and laugh
Speak when I have nothing to say 

Lady Love | Paul Eluard, 1924
L'amoureuse, 1924 / Samuel Beckett's translation
