A Very Short Song (French translation)


A Very Short Song

Once, when I was young and true
Someone left me sad
Broke my brittle heart in two
And that is very bad
Love is for unlucky folk
Love is but a curse
Once there was a heart I broke
And that, I think, is worse

Chanson très brève

Quand j'étais jeune et naïve
Quelqu'un a brisé
En deux mon âme plaintive
Et c'était abuser.
Un cœur, pour les malchanceux,
Est chose à maudire :
J'en ai brisé un en deux
Et c'est encore pire.

This is a poetic translation - deviations from the meaning of the original are present (extra words, extra or omitted information, substituted concepts).

L'air est plein du frisson des choses qui s'enfuient. (Charles Baudelaire)
