JACQUES PRÉVERT: Paris at Night

(translated from the French of Jacques Prévert)

Three matches struck one by one 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 this
As I hold you in my arms.
