“Il pleure dans mon coeur
Comme il pleut sur la ville.

Tears are shed in my heart like the rain on the town.”
Paul Verlaine, One Hundred and One Poems by Paul Verlaine: A Bilingual Edition

“Your soul is a chosen landscape
Where charming masked and costumed figures go
Playing the lute and dancing and almost
Sad beneath their fantastic disguises.

All sing in a minor key
Of all-conquering love and careless fortune
They do not seem to believe in their happiness
And their song mingles with the moonlight.

The still moonlight, sad and beautiful,
Which gives the birds to dream in the trees
And makes the fountain sprays sob in ecstasy,
The tall, slender fountain sprays among the marble statues.”
Paul Verlaine

“Here are fruits, flowers, leaves and branches, and here is my heart which beats only for you. ”
Paul Verlaine
