Remembrance: Marcel Proust #78

Remembrance: Marcel Proust
Part #78

Moments from
“Remembrance of Things Past”

HEDGE OF HAWTHORNS

“For often
I have wished
to see a person again
without realising
that it was simply
because that person
recalled to me
a hedge of hawthorns
in blossom,
and I have been led
to believe,
and to make
someone else believe,
in a renewal
of affection,
by what was
no more than
an inclination
to travel.”

Marcel Proust
