Reconnais-toi
Cette adorable personne c’est toi
Sous le grand chapeau canotier
Oeil
Nez
La bouche
Voici l’ovale de ta figure
Ton cou exquis
Voici enfin l’imparfaite image
          de ton buste adoré
          vu comme à travers un nuage
Un peu plus bas c’est ton coeur qui bat

—Guillaume Apollinaire
extrait du poème du 9 février 1915, (poèmes à Lou)

We’ve all heard it said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but in this calligramme Apollinaire marries the two ideas and gets his point across in far fewer words.
