The face of a mother or a wife, That lived, long ago, on intimate terms with our soul; If you could only revive their ﬂowering, a little, Those faces in the windows, scarcely shaded, To see their features clearly, once more, in our memory! Dead faces, forever on the verge of vanishing, And then, once forgotten, incessantly emerging, Down the stream of the soul, with the distress of an Ophelia, She, with ﬂaxen hair, who is always weeping . . Ah! where is joy in life to be found, When the panes of the loving soul are a water, Where endlessly surfaces and endlessly drowns, Some gentle, intermittent face, with its halo.
