Apollinaire, Guillaume: Clotilde

Portre of Apollinaire, Guillaume

Clotilde (French)

L'anémone et l'ancolie

Ont poussé dans le jardin

Où dort la mélancolie

Entre l'amour et le dédain


Il y vient aussi nos ombres

Que la nuit dissipera

Le soleil qui les rend sombres

Avec elles disparaîtra


Les déités des eaux vives

Laissent couler leurs cheveux

Passe il faut que tu poursuives

Cette belle ombre que tu veux

Clotilde (English)

Anemone and columbine

Where gloom has lain

Opened in gardens

Between love and disdain


Made somber by the sun

Our shadows meet

Until the sun

Is squandered by night


Gods of living water

Let down their hair

And now you must follow

A craving for shadows
