about

Green (Aquarelle), From Ariettes oubliées, L. 60, No. 5 - Claude Debussy

lyrics

Here are the fruits, the flowers, the leaves, and the branches.
And here is my heart, which beats only for you.
Do not rip it apart with your white hands,
and, to your beautiful eyes, may this humble present be sweet.

I arrive, still covered in dew drops,
which the morning wind freezes on my forehead.
Permit that my fatigue, resting at your feet,
may dream of the sweet moments that will refresh it.

Let my head roll onto your young breast,
still resounding with our last kisses.
Let it soothe the good storm,
and let me sleep a little, while you are resting.
(translation by Roxanna Walitzki)

...

Voici des fruits, des fleurs, des feuilles et des branches
Et puis voici mon cœur qui ne bat que pour vous.
Ne le déchirez pas avec vos deux mains blanches
Et qu'à vos yeux si beaux l'humble présent soit doux.

J'arrive tout couvert encore de rosée
Que le vent du matin vient glacer à mon front.
Souffrez que ma fatigue, à vos pieds reposée,
Rêve des chers instants qui la délasseront.

Sur votre jeune sein laissez rouler ma tête
Toute sonore encore de vos derniers baisers ;
Laissez-la s'apaiser de la bonne tempête,
Et que je dorme un peu puisque vous reposez.
(text by Paul Verlaine)
