Paul Eluard Poems

  • Certitude
    If I speak itâ??s to hear you more clearly
    If I hear you Iâ??m sure to understand you

    If you smile itâ??s the better to enter me ...
  • Other Children
    "Little child of my five senses
    and of my tenderness."
    Let us cradle our loves,
    We will have good children. ...
  • Hunted
    A few grains of dust more or less
    On ancient shoulders
    Locks of weakness on weary foreheads
    This theatre of honey and faded roses ...
  • Uninterrupted Poetry
    From the sea to the source
    From mountain to plain
    Runs the phantom of life
    The foul shadow of death ...
  • Ecstasy
    I am in front of this feminine land
    Like a child in front of the fire
    Smiling vaguely with tears in my eyes
    In front of this land where all moves in me ...

Poem of the day

Robert Service Poem
Golden Days
 by Robert Service

Another day of toil and strife,
Another page so white,
Within that fateful Log of Life
That I and all must write;
Another page without a stain
To make of as I may,
That done, I shall not see again
Until the Judgment Day.
