Text heard on Sample:
Il pleure dans mon coeur
Comme il pleut sur la ville ;
Quelle est cette langeur
Qui pénètre mon coeur ?

O bruit doux de la pluie
Par terre et sur les toits !
Pour un coeur qui s'ennuie
O le bruit de la pluie !

Il pleure sans raison
Dans ce coeur qui s'écoeure.
Quoi ! nulle trahison ?...

Tears fall in my heart
As rain falls on the town;
What is this torpor
Pervading my heart?

Ah, the soft sound of rain
On the ground and roofs!
For a listless heart,
Ah, the sound of the rain!

Tears fall without reason
In this disheartened heart.
What! Was there no treason?...

Paul Verlaine (1844-96)
Translated by Richard Stokes,
A French Song Companion (OUP, 2000)
