Cyrano de Bergerac
CYRANO (low and quick, in Christian’s ear, while ROXANE is dipping into the water a strip of linen torn from her dress.)
I have told her; she loves you.
(CHRISTIAN closes his eyes.) (IV. 524)
And his last letter – always at your heart?
It hangs here, like a holy reliquary.
Dead – and you love him still! (V. 44-46)
Sometimes I think
He has not altogether died; our hearts
Meet, and his love flows all around me, living. (V. 46-48)
