If little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you
little by little
If suddenly you forget me
Do not look for me
For I shall already have forgotten you
If you think it long and mad the wind of
Banners that passes through my life
And you decide to leave me at the shore of
The heart where I have roots
That on that day, at that hour, I shall lift my arms
And my roots will set off to seek another land” Pablo Neruda – Selected Poems.
James Thomas Watts – November Evening in a Welsh Wood, 1885-95.
