Voice from Pourquoi, pourquoi? (A. Jacques / Verlaine) - bilingual
Oh! why, Oh! why?
This poem by Paul Verlaine "Je ne sais pourquoi" (I don’t know why) is dated 1873. It is considered as a "tour de force" in rhythm as the flow of the words (in French) superbly models the flight of a seagull. This is reflected here in the melody by the interplay of bars in 2/4 and 3/4 forming patterns of 7/4 and 13/4. The attempted English translation has tried to keep up with this amazing piece of French poetry while fitting the music - an almost impossible task!
