Edna St. Vincent Millay | Love is not blind / L'amore non è cieco

Vincent van Gogh🎨 | The starry night, 1888

Love is not blind. I see with single eye
Your ugliness and other women's grace.
I know the imperfection of your face, -
The eyes too wide apart, the brow too high
For beauty. Learned from earliest youth am I
In loveliness, and cannot so erase
Its letters from my mind, that I may trace
You faultless, I must love until I die.
