Malgré le froid,
de dormir tous les deux dans la nuit
me réchauffe

- Bashô (1644-1694)






A glimpse through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremark’d seated in a corner,
Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand,
A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word.

- Walt Whitman, A Glimpse









thy lusty days
