Cette lettre n'est pas une lettre
Language: French (Français) 
Cette lettre n'est pas une lettre ; 
ce n'est qu'un mot, mais ce mot, 
tout court qu’il est, mon doux ange, 
renferme un baiser long comme la vie, 
et un amour long comme l’éternité.

From a letter to Juliette Drouet dated January 1, 1857. This is a prose text; we have added line-breaks arbitrarily.
