Baudelaire, Charles: Lola de Valence (Lola de Valence in English)

Portre of Baudelaire, Charles

Lola de Valence (French)

Entre tant de beautés que partout on peut voir,
Je comprends bien, amis, que le désir balance ;
Mais on voit scintiller en Lola de Valence
Le charme inattendu d'un bijou rose et noir

Lola de Valence (English)

One sees such beauties everywhere one goes
I know, my friends, desire hesitates;
But in Lola de Valence radiates
The rare charm of a jewel of black and rose.
