Chanson D’Automne / Song of the Night

La nuit souffle
Elle m’ouvre

Elle chante

Le vent est frais
Et il me plaît

Et me hante

La brise danse
Aucune chance

De la pluie

L’air est aride
Le ciel est vide

Cette nuit

Rester par terre
Rien à faire

Que rêver

Les mauvais cieux


The night whistles
And she tickles

And she sings

The wind is fresh
Kisses my breath

Dark hauntings

The breeze will dance
There is no chance

It will rain

The air is dry
Empty the sky

Starless reign

I’m on the ground
Nothing’s around

But these dreams
The evil skies

Make me say lies

I don’t mean

by Edward O’Brien, modeled after “Autumn Song” by Paul Verlaine
