seeing you

To see you is
to hear a symphony,
background music to a movie,
an aria from Puccini,
Lizst playing Rachmanninoff
for my ears only,
for my own private delight!
More joy is in the sight
than is conveyed
by all the celebrated
contents of the Louvre!
Who cares if I’m
the only one who sees you
in this way? My riches
are confirmed
each time I do.
