Manuscript of poem from the great Surrealist poet to his long-time muse, the Belgian actress and singer Yvonne George. Written on six loose leaves of faded notebook paper, it is a moving testament to his obsession and unrequited love for a woman who inspired two collections of poetry and figured a major artistic inspiration in his life.
