En face (1949) no.5

Part of a series or song cycle:

Plupart du temps I

En face

Au bord du toit
Un nuage danse
Trois gouttes d’eau pendent à
La gouttière
Trois étoiles
Des diamants
Et vos yeux brillants qui regardent
Le soleil derrière la vitre


At the edge of the roof
A cloud dances
Three drops of water dangle from
The gutter
Three stars
Of diamonds
And your sparkling eyes which look at
The sun behind the midday
