Clair de lune

 
Votre âme est un paysage choisi
Que vont charmant masques et bergamasques
Jouant du luth et dansant et quasi
Tristes sous leurs déguisements fantasques.
 
Tout en chantant sur le mode mineur
L'amour vainqueur et la vie opportune,
Ils n'ont pas l'air de croire à leur bonheur
Et leur chanson se mêle au clair de lune,
 
Au calme clair de lune triste et beau,
Qui fait rêver les oiseaux dans les arbres
Et sangloter d'extase les jets d'eau,
Les grands jets d'eau sveltes parmi les marbres.

Moonlight

Versions: #1#2
Your soul is a chosen landscape
Where goes charming Masques et Bergamasques
Playing some luth and dancing and almost
Sad under their weird disguise.
 
While singing on the minor mode
The victorious love and the opportune life,
It does not seem like they believe in their happiness
And their song mixes with the moonlight,
 
Under the clam moonlight, sad and beautiful,
Which makes the birds dream in the trees
And sobbing of extasy the water jets,
The big water jets svelt among the trees.
 
All of my work is dedicated to Ms Z. G., who is the real counterpart of Beatrice Portinari for me.
