NPG P283; Charlie Chaplin by Strauss-Peyton Studio

Charlie Chaplin, best known mime actor, wrote a beautiful self love poem on his 70th birthday (April 16, 1959). It is exceptional because there are not many poems written about loving the self and in my opinion, contains much wisdom. Here’s how Chaplin’s self love poem goes….

Beautiful! Perfect sentiment for celebrating this glorious holiday season. Thanks for sharing the love, wishing the both of you joyous New Year♥

listening to the dripping melody

of an old blizzards melting snow

The heat of your summer soul

alludes my sense of the cold

as I submerge myself, deep

into the illusion of your body

Feeling the fervor of your breath

like a fireplace upon my neck

I wear you like a blanket, secure

in the downy softness of your skin

I hear that winter moan from the night

and you cling to me, instilling

the furtherance of this repose,

the propensity of my need for you
