While doing some research on the American poet Carl Sandburg I discovered his poem MONOTONE. It’s difficult not to see the image of Mr. Delon when reading “A face I know is beautiful–”
The monotone of the rain is beautiful,
And the sudden rise and slow relapse
Of the long multitudinous rain.
The sun on the hills is beautiful,
Or a captured sunset sea-flung,
Bannered with fire and gold.
A face I know is beautiful–
With fire and gold of sky and sea,
And the peace of long warm rain.
