“You Rise the Water Unfolds” by Paul Eluard, translated by A.S. Kline

You rise the water unfolds
You sleep the water flowers

You are water plowed from its depths
You are earth that takes root
And in which all is grounded

You make bubbles of silence in the desert of sound
You sing nocturnal hymns on the arcs of the rainbow
You are everywhere you abolish the roads

You sacrifice time
To the eternal youth of an exact flame
That veils Nature to reproduce her

Woman you show the world a body forever the same
Yours

You are its likeness.

I picked this poem from my early poetry readings, a poem I liked and placed here one of my drawings as an illustration.
