Chanson d'automne

Les sanglots longs
des violons
de l’automne
blessent mon cœur
d’une langueur
monotone.
 
Tout suffocant
et blême, quand
sonne l’heure,
je me souviens
des jours anciens
et je pleure.
 
Et je m’en vais
au vent mauvais
qui m’emporte
deçà, delà,
pareil à la
feuille morte.

Autumn Song

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5
The long sighs
Of the violins
Of autumn
Hurt my heart
With a languor
Of sameness.
 
All stifling
And pale, when
The hour sounds,
I remember
Days of once
And I weep.
 
And I let myself go
With the evil wind
Which carries me
Here, beyond,
Like the leaf
Which has died.
 
Thanks!
