Remembrance: Marcel Proust #71

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #71

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

ALMOST IMPALPABLE

“But,
when a past
former nothing remains,
after the death
of beings,
after the destruction
of things,
only,
more frail
but more perennials,
more intangible,
more persistent,
more faithful,
the smell
and the flavor
are still long,
as of souls,
to remember,
to wait,
to hope,
on the ruin
of all the rest,
to bear
without wavering,
on their droplet
almost impalpable,
the huge edifice
of remembrance.”

― Marcel Proust
