Naissance à l’orage (1949) no.2

Part of a series or song cycle:

Plupart du temps I

Naissance à l’orage

Toute la face ronde
Au coin sombre du ciel
La mappemonde
Sous les rideaux de l’air
Des paupières plus longues
Dans la chambre à l’envers
Un nuage s’effondre
La nuit sort d’un éclair

Birth of the storm

The whole round face
At the dark side of the sky
The rapier
The map of the world
Beneath the curtains of air
Longer eyelids
In the upside down room
A cloud collapses
Night issues from a lightning flash
