Love and Time

Max Jacob

(originally dedicated to Michel Leiris)

Revue Européenne, August 1923
Les Pénitents en maillots roses, 1925

When a white arm slips off its glove
You recall an absent love
When like a breeze in a field of wheat
A skirt rustling near your feet
Brushes against your dancing shoe
Something lightly troubles you.
