    Absence diminishes little passions and increases great ones, as
    the wind extinguishes candles and fans a fire.
    [Fr., L'absence diminue les mediocres passions et augmente les
    grandes, comme le vent eteint les bougies et allume le feu.]

When I clamber to the heights of sleep,
Or when I grow excited with wine,
Suddenly I meet your face.
