Piano from Que l’heure est donc brève (Massenet / A. Silvestre)
How brief is the hour
This little poem by Armand Silvestre is a "rondeau" (ancient fixed form based on 2 rhymes only): it was published in Mignonne (1878). This music was composed by Massenet c.1866, published 1868. This poem was slightly modified by Alain Jacques and set in music in 2002 (see ScoreExchange). Literal translation (AJ): How brief is the hour That we spend in loving! It’s less than a moment, A little longer than a dream.
Time takes away from us All our enchantments. How brief is the hour That we spend in loving!
Under the sleeping waves The beach kept on sighing; Did you really love me? Did you, if only for A little longer than a dream? How brief is the hour That we spend in loving!
