POEM OF THE DAY - "The Nakedness of Truth" by Paul Eluard
Written during the period in which he lost his wife to Salvaldor Dali and he contracted Tuberculosis - a 2nd time. The picture of Eluard (right) was painted by Salvador Dali (one of his classics) some years later.
This is a poignant piece.
The Nakedness of Truth (I know it Well)
By Paul Eluard
Despair has no wings,
Nor has love,
They do not speak.
I do not stir,
I do not behold them,
I do not speak to them,
But I am as real as my love and my despair.
