Mirabeau Bridge

Under Mirabeau Bridge the river slips away

And lovers

Must I be reminded

Joy came always after pain



The night is a clock chiming

The days go by not I



We're face to face and hand in hand

While under the bridges

Of embrace expire

Eternal tired tidal eyes



The night is a clock chiming

The days go by not I



Love elapses like the river

Love goes by

Poor life is indolent

And expectation always violent



The night is a clock chiming

The days go by not I



The days and equally the weeks elapse

The past remains the past

Love remains lost

Under Mirabeau Bridge the river slips away



The night is a clock chiming

The days go by not I



From Alcools by Guillaume Apollinaire, translated by Donald Revell.
