Pancarte pour une porte d'entrée


Cours

Avec un peu de ta tristesse mon beau passé antérieur
Je m’arrange à former un mal qui ne divise pas mon cœur
Et les mouvements du dehors prennent le rythme du tangage.

Lessons

With a modicum of your sadness,
my past perfect historic,
I contrive to create
an evil that does not divide my heart
And the movements from outside take on a pitching rhythm

Composer

Marcelle Germaine Tailleferre was a French composer and the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six.
