Four Poems by Gérard de Nerval


Le soir vermeil (Ni bonjour ni bonsoir)

Le matin n'est plus ! le soir pas encore :
Pourtant de nos yeux l'éclair a pâli.
Mais le soir vermeil ressemble à l'aurore,
Et la nuit plus tard amène l'oubli !

The vermilion evening (Neither good-day nor good-night)

Morning is no more! Evening has yet to fall:
Yet the light has dimmed in our eyes.
But vermilion evening resembles dawn,
And the night will later lead to oblivion!
