Monique Morelli - Ronsard - Time is going away


Original Title: "Le Temps s'en va"
Text: Pierre de Ronsard

Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,
Alas! The time does not but us, we are going away
And soon we will be stretched out under the blade
Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,

I am sending you a bouquet, that my hand,
Just selected among those flowers in full bloom
Which if hadn’t picked them up during those vespers
Would have fallen to the ground tomorrow

Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,
Alas! The time does not but us, we are going away
And soon will be stretched out under the blade
Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,

Let it be to you a sure example
That your beauties, even though they are blossomed
In a little bit of time, will be withered
And, like flowers, will perish all suddenly

Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,
Alas! The time does not but us, we are going away
And soon we will be stretched out under the blade
Time is going away, time is going away my Lady,

The original poem finishes with those two verses:
And those loves of which we talk about
When will be dead, no one would hear about them anymore
