Creative Quotations from . . .
Paul Verlaine
(1844-1896) born on
Mar 30
French poet. His lyrics are known for their musical tone and gracefulness, e.g., "Sagesse," 1881.
And everything else is just literature

Tears fall in my heart like the rain on the town.
Music before all else,
and for that choose the irregular,
which is vaguer and melts better into the air...
Take eloquence and wring its neck.
And here is my heart which beats only for you.
