August 15, 1846
I will cover you with love when next I see you,
with caresses, with
ecstasy. I want to gorge yu with all the joys of
the flesh, so that
you faint and die. I want you to be amazed by me,
and to confess to
yourself that you had never even dreamed of such
you are old, I want you to recall those few hours,
I want your dry
bones to quiver with joy when you think of
Gustave Flaubert, famous French writer, to his wife Louise Colet
